Dr. Cunningham talks about innovative sports medicine treatment for knee Injuries!

Knee injuries and knee pain are among the most common orthopedic problems that we evaluate. Both high-impact (running triathlons, basketball, tennis, soccer) and lower-impact (golf, cycling, skiing) sports can exact a toll on even the fittest and enthusiastic athlete over the years. This can lead to acute or chronic injury, with cartilage damage, as a result, robbing you of the enjoyment of an active lifestyle.
