About Knoxville Hospital & Clinics
Welcome to Knoxville Hospital & Clinics, the premier healthcare facility in South Central Iowa serving Marion County and the surrounding areas. We are dedicated to providing personal, progressive, quality healthcare with compassion.
We are first and only facility in Central Iowa to offer robotics-assisted partial knee replacement using the NAVIO system. We chose the NAVIO system because it provides accuracy and precision.1 Unlike other robotics-assisted surgical systems, the NAVIO system delivers the benefits of robotic assistance without requiring patients to undergo a radiation intensive CT scan.2

Treating Osteoarthritis Pain
Osteoarthritis is the leading cause of knee pain in the United States.3 It develops slowly and the pain it causes worsens over time. Because of the degenerative nature of the disease, it is best to have knee pain diagnosed and treated early. Our NAVIO certified physicians have many years of clinical experience treating patients suffering from knee pain caused by osteoarthritis. Our primary goal is to relieve your knee pain and get you back to the activities you love, and our team is dedicated to doing just that.
