For qualifying patients whose arthritis only affects the medial part of their knee joint, partial knee replacement surgery can be a faster, less invasive alternative to total knee replacement. Partial knee surgery replaces only the portion of your knee joint affected by arthritis. That means a smaller incision, no tendon or muscle damage, and a post-surgical range of motion that is much more natural!
Due to the more conservative nature of the surgery, there is a very quick recovery time. Most patients will be able to return to regular activity unassisted after six weeks. Some patients may even be eligible for outpatient surgery, which allows you to enter and leave the hospital on the same day.
