Dr. Cooper's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Cooper "please see my c.v. Online at Thekneecenter dot com"

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Cooper "The knee is a special joint requring specialized care. Older patients with arthritis benefit from visosupplementation injected under ultrasound guidance into the knee joint. In most cases this eliminates the need for surgery and knee replacememnts.Also, arthroscopic surgery can be done to clean out a knee, repair torn cartilege, and prevent further damage. We also offer PRP for the conservative treatment of knee, shoulder, and elbow problems. We have a very efficient office thanks to my excellent staff. Most patients never wait more than 10 mnutes to be seen. Thank you."
