Partial knee replacement

Specialty of Orthopaedic surgery

What is a partial knee replacement?

A partial knee replacement is a surgical procedure where, unlike in a full knee replacement, only the damaged or injured part of the knee is removed and replaced. It generally causes less pain and allows the patient a faster recovery, due to the fact that it is a less invasive operation and preserves more of the natural joint.

What conditions does a partial knee replacement treat?

Partial knee replacement is generally used to treat patients with knee arthritis, in particular those who have not responded to treatment.
