The knee is the largest joint in the body. The knee joint includes these three bones: femur (thigh bone), tibia (leg bone) and patella (knee cap).
Ligaments hold the bones of the knee joint in place. These ligaments work with muscles, bones and tendons to allow the knee to bend and straighten. These joint surfaces where the femur, tibia and patella touch are covered with articular cartilage, a smooth material that cushions the bones so that they glide smoothly. With osteoarthritis, this cushioning is missing, making movement painful.
If knee pain is interfering with your activities of daily living, Doylestown Health's experienced orthopedic surgeons offer a wide range of innovative knee therapies for faster recoveries.
