Knee Center

Did you know that your knee joint is the largest joint in your body? Not only does it support the majority of your weight and movement, but it also acts as a shock absorber. It’s no wonder why it’s so incapacitating when good knees go bad.

We are here to help you achieve victory over knee pain

Knee problems can arise at any age due to injury, overuse or arthritis. Sore knees can be treated with anti-inflammatory medications and RICE (rest, ice, compression and elevation), but severe knee pain should be examined by a knee doctor right away — especially if you heard a “pop” during the injury, or if the knee can’t move or support your weight.

At The Knee Center at Andrews Sports Medicine, our non-surgical sports medicine & orthopaedic physicians, and knee surgeons take a team approach to diagnose and identify the best form of treatment for knee injuries, disorders, and chronic conditions based on each patient’s unique situation. 

Our team of experts are accustomed to treating the most common knee injuries and conditions from knee sprains, Illiotibial Band Syndrome (ITBS), meniscus tear, osteoarthritis, runners knee, and other knee ligament injuries to more complex injuries like Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) Injuries, articular cartilage injury, meniscus transplants, knee arthroscopy, total knee replacements and triathlon knee replacements. 

Andrews Sports Medicine & Orthopaedic Center is the first orthopaedic practice in Birmingham, AL to offer robotic-arm assisted total knee, partial knee and total hip replacements with Stryker’s Mako System. This highly-advanced, robotic technology transforms the way joint replacement surgery is performed, enabling surgeons to have a more predictable surgical experience with increased accuracy.

When necessary, we coordinate with other trusted providers, such as physical therapists to help you recover faster and return to your sport, activity or passion as quickly and safely as possible. 

If you need orthopaedic treatment for an acute knee injury or osteoarthritis, call us at (205) 939-3699 or request an appointment online.
