There are a number of conditions that affect the knees – joint pain, swelling, stiffness, torn ligaments, cartilage degeneration, meniscus damage, and more. Many people have knee problems as a result of sports injuries or accidents. As we age, osteoarthritis can take its toll, making it difficult to walk, go up and down stairs, and exercise without some level of knee pain.
Fortunately, orthopedic medicine can remedy these knee conditions, and Dr. Barbara Bergin has many years of experience as a knee surgeon at Texas Orthopedics.
