Knee Conditions

Knee conditions normally involve disease or injury that can disturb the normal functioning of the joint.  This can result in knee pain, weakness, instability, and limited movement. With longer life expectancy and greater activity levels, joint replacement is being performed in greater numbers on patients thanks to new advances in artificial joint technology provided by Dr. Joseph Hecht at Orthopaedic Specialists of Northwest Indiana.
