My name is Dr. David Halsey and along with Dr. James Howe, I provide comprehensive medical and surgical care for patients who are suffering from acute and chronic hip and knee problems at the UVM Medical Center’s Orthopedic Specialty Center.
We understand the value of providing up-to-date information on the new techniques and technologies available to people who suffer from chronic knee joint pain, and we want people to know that these important medical and surgical advances are available here in Vermont.
Our University of Vermont Medical Group physicians from Orthopedics & Rehabilitation at the UVM Medical Center provide a wide range of non-surgical therapies and surgical procedures. These services include physical therapy, injection therapy, minimally invasive surgery, and partial and total knee joint replacement – including the FDA-cleared VERILAST “30 Year Knee Replacement”.
We’ve have more than 50 years of combined orthopedic experience, and successfully perform hundreds of joint replacement procedures each year. The medical literature is very clear that a patient is more likely to have a complication-free surgical experience when the surgeon and team perform a high volume of similar procedures annually. Experience and volume matters!
However, each approach to knee pain has its own unique mix of benefits and potential risks, and it is important to learn as much as you can about your treatment options.
If you’ve been putting off treatment for knee pain – or just want to learn more about managing osteoarthritis – we’re here to help.
