When intense pain hinders mobility and interferes with a full night’s rest, visit with the skilled hip and knee orthopaedic specialists at The Nebraska Medical Center. Orthopaedic physicians at the medical center are specially trained to treat the most complex hip and knee revision cases, prosthetic joint infection, joint diseases as well as more common hip and knee problems.
Common hip and knee conditions are:

Instability, limited mobility and pain are the most common warning signs indicating a problem of the hip and knee. Often times there may be a popping sensation or feel as though the joints are grinding. Some experience stiffness of the joint as well as weakness. Possible Treatments may include hip replacement, hip revision, knee replacement, knee revision or unicompartmental (partial) knee replacement.
