Partial Knee Replacement

What Is Partial Knee Replacement?

Unlock Freedom of Movement with Partial Knee Replacement Surgery at City Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine

Partial knee replacement, also known as partial knee resurfacing or unicondylar knee arthroplasty, offers a precise surgical solution for patients suffering from unicompartmental knee arthritis. At City Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine, we specialize in this innovative procedure, dedicated to restoring your knee’s function while preserving ligaments and healthy cartilage.

Are You a Candidate for Partial Knee Resurfacing?

Ideal candidates for partial knee replacement have arthritis limited to a single knee compartment and generally maintain a healthy weight. This procedure is not suitable for patients with significant knee stiffness or angular deformities. Intact knee ligaments are usually required for a successful outcome. Patients with rheumatoid arthritis are typically not considered for partial knee solutions, as this form of arthritis typically affects the entire joint.

The Expertise Behind Partial Knee Surgery at City Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine

During partial knee replacement, our skilled orthopedic surgeons perform a precise procedure to access the affected knee compartment through a small incision. They gently reposition knee support structures to expose the arthritic area, meticulously removing damaged cartilage and bone tissue from the tibia and femur surfaces. Pre-operative CT scanning with 3-D templating and robotic-assisted technology ensure utmost accuracy.The surgeon then expertly prepares these surfaces using a Mako robotically-assisted burr for the precise insertion of custom-sized prosthesis components. Cement is employed to securely anchor these components, restoring all surrounding structures and tissues to their natural position before closing the incision.

Recovery from Partial Knee Replacement Surgery

Following partial knee replacement at City Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine, most patients typically stay in the hospital for one to two nights. Many can walk with assistance or independently on the same day as their surgery. Within a week, patients are often provided with a cane to enhance their independence and begin outpatient rehabilitation.
