Welcome to KneeDecide™!
KneeDecide is a new physician-based medical app designed to provide easy access to information, discussion, and current scientifically recommended treatment for common knee conditions. VIEW knee motion in 360 degrees. EXPLORE anatomy layer by layer from outer muscle to bone. MATCH your condition to other common conditions detailed in 15 different MRIs. LEARN about treatment processes through varied media content. LOCATE specialists near you in easy to understand listings.
The purpose of KneeDecide™ is to educate the non-medically trained patient about their knee problems. It aims to enhance understanding of common conditions of the knee area while answering in an informed, practical guide which conditions may require surgical treatment. After you have been referred for an MRI and are exiting the imaging center with image in hand, you are met with a barrage of treatment options that can be overwhelming. For patients suffering from knee pain, an effective and timely treatment is crucial to regaining and maintaining a high quality of life, but how can you make sense of so much information?
KneeDecide presents a valuable guide for patients as they seek to understand and find the most effective treatment for their knee problems. The user will scroll through an easy to understand explanation of knee anatomy and common conditions accompanied by educational illustrations and clearly translated MRI samples.
The treatments covered are:
Minor Mechanical Disorders
Iliotibial Band Syndrome (ITBS)
Patellar Tendonitis (Jumper’s Knee)
Lateral Patellar Compression
ACL (Anterior Cruciate Ligament) Tear
PCL (Posterior Cruciate Ligament) Tear
MCL (Medial Collateral Ligament) Injuries
Acute Isolated Chondral Lesion
Orca MD`s series of medical apps focuses on both temporary treatment solutions and conditions which may be serious enough for possible surgical remedy. All contributors are speciality-trained MDs with several decades experience and advanced degrees from:
University of Washington
University of Southern California.
Orca MD understands that as health insurance co-pay costs rise and the number of qualified doctors decreases, the need to find a clear path to the correct treatment in a more efficient manner is increasingly important. KneeDecide
does just that.
