Comprehensive Care for Knee Injuries
Your knee, one of the largest and most complex joints, plays a pivotal role in your daily movements. From simple tasks such as walking and standing to complex activities like running and dancing, the health of your knees is essential. At Dayton Orthopedic Surgery, we specialize in diagnosing, managing, and treating a wide array of knee problems. Let us help you step back into a pain-free, mobile life.
Often referred to as “wear and tear” arthritis, OA is a degenerative joint disease that affects millions. If you’re feeling pain, swelling, or stiffness in your knee, it might be due to OA.
Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) Tears
Common among athletes, an ACL tear can significantly hinder knee stability. We offer both surgical and non-surgical treatments to get you back on your feet.
The meniscus, a piece of cartilage acting as a cushion, can tear due to age or trauma. Experience relief with our tailored treatments.
Bursae are small sacs filled with fluid that cushion the outside of your knee joint. When these become inflamed, we’re here to alleviate the pain and discomfort.
Often called “jumper’s knee”, this injury is an inflammation of the tendon connecting your kneecap to your shinbone. Whether you’re an athlete or a weekend warrior, we’re here to help.
Broken bones around the knee are serious but not unbeatable. With our advanced surgical procedures and post-operative care, you’ll be on the mend quickly.
Iliotibial Band Syndrome
This common cause of outer knee pain, especially among runners, can be addressed through our personalized therapy programs.
Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome
If you feel pain under your kneecap, particularly when going up or down stairs, it might be this syndrome. Let us identify the best solution for you.
This condition is caused by the softening and breakdown of the tissue (cartilage) on the underside of your kneecap. Our team can offer therapies to reduce discomfort and progression.
Gout & Pseudogout
Sudden, intense joint pain might be due to these conditions. We provide treatments to reduce inflammation and pain.

“Listened & understood my needs before surgery. The surgery went very well, and was just as he explained. Post surgery recovery time was much less than expected. Absolutely no pain, very minimal discomfort, and was back doing my normal routine with only slight modification within 2 months. I am very, very happy with Dr. Paley & his staff.”
After another Doctor screwed my knee up and told me it was all in my head I went to Dr. Paley he has done two surgeries to correct the first one and is by far the best and most caring Doctor I have seen. His whole office staff are wonderful people that are always happy to be there and his Physicians Assistants actually know what they are doing. Great great great!
