Knee Care

Find knee pain relief.

Do you suffer from knee pain? If so, you're not alone. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control, one in two Americans may suffer from knee osteoarthritis symptoms by the time they are 85.

Osteoarthritis is a degenerative joint disease that's caused by the breakdown and eventual loss of cartilage in the knee - resulting in bones rubbing directly against each other. This can lead to severe joint pain, deformity and loss of movement.

If you're living with knee pain due to osteoarthritis, St. Luke's Des Peres Hospital offers innovative treatment options in addition to a range of nonsurgical options.
