Dr Franzino says. “By age 50 most patients have limited options: live with it, cortisone injections, modify your activities or, if the pain becomes too much, replace your knee joint.” His goal is to use less-invasive surgical treatments—such as knee and patella resurfacing or cartilage replacement—to buy more time for his patients at a younger age and to delay or avoid a full knee replacement.
