The physicians at CPOSM specialize in the entire spectrum of knee problems including arthritis, tendonitis, cartilage injury, ligament injuries including ACL tears along with simple sprains and patella pain. We use the most up to date approaches to treat these conditions including physical therapy, injections and surgery. The physicians at CPOSM have earned an outstanding reputation in the San Francisco Bay Area for their advanced treatment of this very complex joint. If your pain is below your knee and above your ankle it is in your leg and there are many possible causes; these rarely need surgical treatment. Some causes of this type of pain include tendonitis, shin splints, stress fractures, exertional compartment syndrome and muscle strains. Once a diagnosis is made the CPOSM specialist will be able to direct you on your road to recovery.
