Implementation of evidence - non-surgical treatment of knee OA

Waiting list initiative: In the Clinic, we now engage in a collaboration with the Department of Orthopedic Surgery focusing on a variety of treatments to be offered persons as possible alternative to knee replacements. The initiative is sponsored by the Administration and consists of individual programs including ultrasound guided injections, physiotherapy and, for the obese, participation in group based dietary consultancies. The aim is to relieve people while waiting for surgery with a possibility of postponing the operation and in some cases even avoiding the knee replacement.
