Knee Arthroscopy in Texas Hill Country
Patients of all ages can develop knee pain.Â This pain can develop from an acute injury or from wear-and-tear on the joing.Â Both of these problems can potentially be treated with knee arthroscopy.Â Not all patients with knee pain require surgical intervention but if appropriate, Dr Beicker is able to perform knee arthroscopy in order to repair what is damaged.Â Whether it be a torn ACL, damaged cartilage or meniscus, dislocating patella, or any other type of knee problem, Dr Beicker is able to fix these usually through small incisions around the knee.Â This minimally invasive approach to dealing with these problems allows the patient to recover quicker and may result in improved overall outcome and satisfaction.

If you suffer from this debilitating disease, Dr Beicker can evaluate you and discuss all your treatment options so that you are able to make an informed decision about how to treat your pain.Â If appropriate, Dr Beicker can perform a total knee replacement. This involves removing the existing damaged cartilage and replacing it with an implant that is made out of metal and plastic.Â Total knee replacement is arguably one of the most successful surgeries done today.Â Patients who receive a knee replacement can expect to have decreased pain in their knee and work and function at a potentially higher level due to their decreased pain.
