Knoxville Hospital & Clinics Orthopedics
Iowa’s Center for Knee Pain Treatment
About Knoxville Hospital & Clinics
Welcome to the Knoxville Hospital & Clinics, a premier healthcare facility located in South Central Iowa. We are proud to say that our mission of providing exceptional, patient-centered care has earned us the distinction of being the orthopaedic healthcare destination for people living across Iowa and in northern Missouri.
We were the first and are the only facility in Central Iowa to offer robotics-assisted partial knee replacement using the NAVIO system. We were also the first and are the only place where NAVIO robotics-assisted total knee replacement surgeries are performed.
We chose the NAVIO system because it provides surgical accuracy and precision.1 Proper implant positioning is crucial to joint function, comfort, and how long your implant may last. In addition, unlike other robotics-assisted surgical systems, the NAVIO system does not require 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.
