Partial knee replacement

Partial knee replacement

A partial knee replacement is surgery to replace only one part of a damaged knee. It can replace either the inside (medial) part, the outside (lateral) part, or the kneecap part of the knee.

Partial knee replacement surgery removes damaged tissue and bone in the knee joint. It is done when arthritis is present in only part of the knee. The areas are replaced with a man-made implant, called a prosthetic. The rest of your knee is preserved. Partial knee replacements are most often done with smaller incisions, so there is less recovery time.

The surgeon will make a cut over your knee. This cut is about 3 to 5 inches (7.5 to 13 centimeters) long.

  • Next, the surgeon looks at the entire knee joint. If there is damage to more than one part of your knee, you may need a total knee replacement. Most of the time this is not needed, because tests done before the procedure would have shown this damage.
  • The damaged bone and tissue are removed.
  • A part made from plastic and metal is placed into the knee.
  • Once the part is in the proper place, it is attached with bone cement.
  • The wound is closed with stitches.

    Appropriate diagnosis and early treatment of these conditions shall render a painfree and healthy life.
