Care Philosophy

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.Read more

in Pottsville, PA |
Dr. Cooper is extremely skilled, very professional, direct, always positive & pleasant to deal with. I greatly appreciate all he has done over the past several years in caring for both of my knees, I only hope he has no retirement thoughts during my lifetime. Mary Ann & his entire office staff are very accommodating, intelligent & cordial with scheduling & any other knee concerns. I would highly recommend Dr. Cooper to anyone.
