Part or Uni Compartment Knee Replacement
Sometimes you may only have Arthritis in one part of your knee
joint. If so, a full replacement is unecessary and a part
replacement can solve the problem more simply. This operation is
less invasive than a Total Knee Replacement and usually requires a
hospital stay of three nights. Recovery is simpler than other
procedures, usually quicker and you can return to full
functionality like kneeling more easily. See Knee Replacement
(Partial) Surgery for more information.
Many young patients with Arthritis have been told they are too
young for a Knee Replacement. Our solution for you is to
realign your knee by offloading the damaged area. You will be
required to stay for two to three night stay after your procedure.
