Knee Surgery Options from the Experienced Team at Tampa General Hospital
Many individuals will require knee surgery at some point in their lives, as the knee joint – a load-bearing structure consisting of bones, cartilage, tendons, ligaments, and muscles – is susceptible to a variety of injuries and degenerative conditions. At Tampa General Hospital, we offer surgical knee treatment to individuals who have experienced a sudden, traumatic injury and to those who have been plagued by chronic knee pain. When performing knee surgery, our goal is to help our patients improve their mobility and overall quality of life.
Why Choose TGH for Knee Surgery?
At TGH, we are proud to be a leading destination for orthopedic care. Some of the reasons that so many patients trust their surgical knee pain treatment to us include that we:
