Partial Knee Replacement Surgery
Restoring Patients’ Mobility & Function
Arthritis of the knee wears away the cartilage of the joint, grinding away
the cushion that makes movement painless. Without the cushion of cartilage,
bending the leg becomes painful and unstable. According to the American
Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons and the Arthritis Foundation, knee replacement
can solve the problem, but in some cases, only a portion of the knee is
affected by osteoarthritis.
When this is the case, the solution may be a partial knee replacement.
Also known as unicompartmental knee replacement, it replaces one of the
“compartments” of the knee cartilage, including the meniscus
on that side. It allows patients to keep most of their healthy tissue,
while treating the damaged part of the joint.
