Knee Repair, Not Knee Replacement
Knee Repair

Marc P. Pietropaoli, MD pictured performing the Knee Repair, Not Knee Replacement surgical procedure
Unlike traditional “knee replacement surgery” in which the diseased or damaged knee joint is removed and replaced with an artificial one, the Knee Repair, Not Knee Replacement procedure is a minimally invasive procedure that may actually delay or prevent the progression of knee osteoarthritis itself, by treating underlying causes of osteoarthritis knee pain and mobility limitations.

Many patients who anticipate many more years of their active lifestyle, are looking for alternatives to invasive full knee re-placement surgery, and the lengthy recovery process in addition to some lifetime activity limitations (no running/jumping for example) that accompanies it. Knee Repair, Not Knee Replacement offers just such an option.

MLS Laser Therapy: The Wave of the Future for Treating Pain

MLS Laser Therapy

What is Laser Therapy?

Laser Therapy is the use of specific wavelengths of light to treat painful and debilitating conditions.

How Does It Work?

Light energy enters the damaged cells and stimulates inter-cellular activity. This reduces pain in the area and speeds recovery of the damaged cells.  Once the cells recover, the healing process is complete.

What Can I Expect After the Treatment?

Most people begin to experience positive results within a few treatments, with the average course of treatment being 6 to 12 sessions. Swelling is greatly reduced and there is a rapid relief of pain. Acute conditions usually subside quickly, typically within one phase of treatments, while chronic conditions can be controlled with regular treatments.

Video Testimonials: MLS Laser Therapy

Knee Pain

Rich is a pro motocross and snowmobile racer, with an old knee injury from 1976. Rich had MLS Laser Therapy treatments on his knee and states “Before the treatment, I was having trouble sleeping at night. I’m on my 6th treatment and for the first time since 1976 I’m pretty much pain free.”

Shoulder Pain

Being a Nurse Practitioner, Chris was in search of a drug-free alternative for pain relief in her shoulder. When she found MLS Laser Therapy at Victory Sports Medicine, she couldn’t wait to share the news with her patients, family, and colleagues. She quotes “I think this would be a great treatment for a lot of people.”

Ankle Pain & Swelling

Heather had significant ankle pain and swelling that was reduced by only the 2nd treatment of laser therapy, and completely gone by the 6th treatment!
