    Knee & Arthroscopic Surgeon

    Dr. Colin Sherrill moved to Missoula, Montana in 2000 and joined the Missoula Bone & Joint orthopedic clinic. Dr. Sherrill has focused his area of expertise on the evaluation and treatment of all knee conditions. Knee pain can be caused by any number of factors, from sports injuries to chronic conditions. The knee joint is a complex hinge joint, allowing us to bend at the knee and bear weight. Because there are so many components within the knee, it is subject to a number of injuries. Whether you have a torn ligament, meniscus tear, ACL rupture, arthritis, fracture, or dislocation, Dr. Sherrill understands that knee pain can be debilitating and frustrating. Dr. Sherrill performs a comprehensive evaluation on each patient and provides treatment options for your particular condition or sports injury. Many conditions can be treated without surgery. Nonsurgical treatment may include physical therapy, home exercise program, medication, injections, or a brace. If surgery is your best option, Dr. Sherrill is a board certified, fellowship trained orthopedic surgeon specializing in arthroscopic and total knee joint replacement surgery with over 20 years of experience. Arthroscopy is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that allows your surgeon to see the structures inside your joint. Because the instruments are thin, your surgeon can use very small incisions to repair any damage inside the joint. Osteoarthritis is a chronic degenerative condition that causes the cartilage between joints to wear down. Eventually your bones start to rub together as you move; it is this friction that can result in knee pain, stiffness and swelling. While the symptoms of knee arthritis may be tolerated with some medications and lifestyle adjustments, for many, knee replacement is the only way to reduce pain and restore function. The right time for knee replacement surgery is when the pain is effecting your quality of life. Dr. Sherrill enjoys working with his patients to offer a comprehensive treatment plan and to get his patients back doing the activities they enjoy.
