About Us

I am honored to be a part of the hard-working Arthritis Knee Pain Centers family. People all over the country look to us to help them find relief from the debilitating pain caused by osteoarthritis.

Helping our patients live active lives, free from the pain associated with osteoarthritis is truly our purpose. We are committed to providing the best possible care for each of our patients.

Every day we commit our talents and best efforts to improve our clinical protocols and business practices, so our patients feel welcomed and taken care of during their treatments.

Our Mission

AKPC’s mission is to provide exceptional, non-surgical, non-opioid, pain-relieving therapy to patients suffering from chronic osteoarthritis of the knee. Every patient is special. Every patient is family. Our standard of care celebrates every patient’s unique needs with empathy, care, and transparency.

Our Standard of Care is Simple

Treat every patient as if he/she is a beloved family member. In every patient engagement, we lead with six guiding principles:


  • Dignity
  • Compassion
  • Responsiveness
  • Personalization
  • Privacy
  • Safety
