Knee Pain

Knee pain is common, especially among active adults. There are many causes for this pain and numerous treatment options. Whether you are a weekend warrior (play in sports leagues), you love to go for a daily run or walk, or simply tripped and fell at home; knee pain should be cared for as soon as possible to prevent any underlying issues from developing. Your orthopedic surgeons at the Washington Sports Medicine Institute understand how serious the consideration of knee surgery and the subsequent physical therapy can be.

Patient Testimonials

“Dr. Davis was a true professional throughout my entire Pre-Op and Post-Op appointments. He was very patient and took his time to answer all my questions as it related to my shoulder injury. I definitely would recommend the services of Dr Davis to others. He and his staff are well trained, great hospitality and VERY PUNCTUAL.”

“I went to see Dr. Thal about my Tennis elbow and he was great. He gave me a brace to wear when I worked out and told me to tone it down a bit on the weight. I haven’t had any problems since and no longer have to wear the brace after 4 months. He also took the time to look at the bursitis in my hip and treated that for me.”
ET, patient
“Received great care from Dr. Walters for our daughter. Would highly recommend! She takes time to observe, answer all our questions, and choose the right treatment and follow up. Would recommend her to anyone searching for a pediatric orthopedic doctor.”
