What doctor do I see for knee pain?

Serious and chronic knee pain requires the expertise of a pain management doctor or an orthopedic specialist. Here at Northstar Joint and Spine, Dr. Robert J. Nocerini MD has 26 years of experience and is certified with the American Board of Medical Specialties in all three specialties i.e., American Board of Emergency Medicine, American Board of Anesthesiology, and Pain Medicine (Anesthesiology). Dr. Robert J. Nocerini MD will provide specialized and comprehensive care to help relieve your chronic pain conditions. He can help with:

• Diagnose any issues with your knees
• Treat and help you manage your pain and the condition causing it
• Help you avoid pain and complications in the future
• And very likely improve your mobility and quality of life

When should you see a pain management doctor for knee pain?

Here are some simple, general rules for when to see a doctor about knee pain. You should do so if:

• Your knee pain is severe
• Medication hasn’t been working
• Your pain is debilitating, affecting your everyday activities
• The pain has been continuing for over 3 months (which is chronic pain that requires professional care)

When you go see the specialist about your pain, mention any injuries or activities that could be responsible for the pain, or that could be aggravating it.

What are some chronic medical conditions causing knee pain that you treat?

Here at Northstar Joint and Spine, we see a lot of patients with different chronic conditions that cause their knee pain or ACL pain. Some of the most common conditions we see include:

Arthritis
• Rheumatoid arthritis
• Osteoarthritis
• Patellofemoral arthritis
• Knee inflammation and swelling
• Degenerative joint disease
• Bursitis
• Tendonitis
• Chondromalacia
• Meniscus tears (which are very common knee injuries)
And many others

We can treat these common chronic conditions and others, so regardless of what could be causing your knee pain, we can likely help you.

What non-surgical procedures might be used to treat knee pain?

The treatment for knee pain depends on the condition that’s causing it. Of course, we want to help relieve your pain in the short term, so we can provide a prescription pain relief medication if you require one. But we also want to treat your pain in the long term, as well as treat your condition, so we also offer treatments like:

A2M Injections, which stands for Alpha-2-macroglobulin
Joint Injections
Viscosupplement injections
• And many others

We also offer NorthStar Knee Program, we utilize a number of different therapies and procedures in the treatment of knee pain. Depending on the condition, a combination of approaches might be recommended. Inflammation is often a source of knee joint pain, so we also focus on addressing dietary and metabolic sources of inflammation to reduce pain.

Who can benefit from these procedures?

You could benefit greatly from one of the aforementioned procedures. You will make a good candidate if you have knee pain and a chronic knee condition and are interested in a non-surgical solution. Men and women of all ages and activity levels can benefit from our procedures. Older patients often benefit greatly. You’ll be pleased to hear that many insurances cover the costs of many of our procedures, so if you believe you could benefit from one of them, don’t hesitate to contact us.
