Welcome to BoulderCentre for Orthopedics & Spine


Our specialty-trained knee doctors at BoulderCentre for Orthopedics & Spine are the area's distinguished experts in the diagnosis and treatment of patients' knee injuries and conditions.

Knee pain can oftentimes be much worse than any other type of joint pain as the knees support your full body weight. This means that the joint endures additional stress whenever we put weight on them with daily activities such as standing, walking, or running. Knee pain comes in different forms such as the result of a traumatic or one-time injury, most often a sports-related injury or fall.

It can also occur with age from the wear and tear or deterioration of the cartilage over time, like arthritis. Being overweight can also cause knee pain and damage. No matter the type of pain you are experiencing, a knee doctor can help diagnose your injury or condition and offer treatment options to provide relief.
