BJC HealthCare understands the concern COVID-19 has caused for our patients and communities. We are working together to help you and your family return to activities that bring you joy. Things may look a little different when you return to our facilities, as we are taking many important precautions to keep you and your family healthy and safe:
Screening all staff and patients | Continuing to thoroughly disinfect exam rooms between each patient visit | Maintaining visitor restrictions to limit the exposure to others during your visit | Reformatting waiting rooms to enable social distancing | Requiring face masks or coverings to enter our facilities | Staggering appointments to maintain social distancing and keep a comfortable waiting room environment
Find out what may be causing pain and stiffness in and around your knee joint. Many common knee problems or injuries benefit from an evaluation and tailored treatment plan from one of our orthopedic knee specialists.
Take the first step towards returning to activities you love. Receive personalized recommendations and education about your condition by answering a few questions about your joint function, activity level and lifestyle.
If medical treatment plans don’t control your pain, your pain in and around your knee is getting worse or you have an injury, your orthopedic physician may recommend a knee replacement. The goal of a knee replacement is to help eliminate knee pain and symptoms to help you be more active.
