Hello there, treatment options include, Lubrication injections. Injections of hyaluronic acid may offer pain relief by providing some cushioning in your knee. Hyaluronic acid is similar to a component normally found in your joint fluid....Realigning bones. During a surgical procedure called an osteotomy, the orthopedician cuts across the bone either above or below the knee to realign the leg. Osteotomy can reduce knee pain by shifting your body weight away from the worn-out part of your knee....Joint replacement. In joint replacement surgery (arthroplasty), your or orthopedician removes your damaged joint surfaces and replaces them with plastic and metal parts...But diabetes and hypertension has to be controlled before surgery....
