Dr. Scott A. Welsh, a board certified Orthopedic Surgeon, has a particular interest in the treatment of knee injuries. He has a special interest in procedures to transplant or regenerate new cartilage in the knee using minimally invasive techniques. He has an interest in ligament reconstructions of the knee, meniscus surgery, and minimally invasive procedures on the shoulder and ankle. He also performs fracture repair and total joint replacements of the knee, hip, and shoulder. He works closely with physical therapists, athletic trainers, personal trainers, chiropractors, and nutritionists to maximize patient education and help athletes get back to their active lifestyle as quickly as possible.
Knee pain is a common complaint among active individuals, ranging from the weekend warrior to the elite athlete. Symptoms often begin when there has been a change in one's activity level whether they have just begun a new exercise program or have increased the frequency, intensity, or duration of their training. Overuse syndromes which usually respond to a short period of rest or cross training are common in this scenario. Meniscus tears, cartilage injuries, ligament tears, and stress fractures can also occur and lead to significant disability if left untreated. Symptoms that should cause concern include: swelling, painful popping or catching, locking, giving way episodes, a feeling of instability, and pain that is getting progressively worse.
