If you have chronic knee pain or a sudden injury, call the Sports Medicine Institute. Our specialists are ready to give you a thorough, accurate diagnosis. They will explain your condition and all available treatment options and work closely with you to make sure you get the most effective solution.

Our physicians have specific training and years of experience successfully treating common injuries and complex knee problems including:

Dr. Lucas and Dr. Nowicki perform the most advanced knee procedures, including joint reconstruction, partial and total knee replacement, revision surgery, cartilage regeneration and transplants and many others.

The Sports Medicine Institute specialists use a minimally invasive approach with most knee procedures. Minimally invasive or arthroscopic knee surgery is performed through small incisions. In general, compared with older surgical techniques, a minimally invasive knee surgery gets you back on your feet quicker, with less postoperative pain and excellent longterm results.
