What you need to know
Your knee is the largest joint in your body, containing bones, ligaments, cartilage, tendons, blood vessels, and nerves. All of these parts work together to allow you to bend your leg; because of this, and because of its size and importance, the knee is sensitive – prone to a variety of injuries and painful conditions. If you are suffering from knee pain, the doctors at Westchase Orthopedics & Rehabilitation can make a diagnosis and offer medical and surgical treatment.
