Research findings: Partial knee replacement patients gain added range-of-motion

Our surgeons are experts in their field and they are always researching the latest in orthopedic discovery to improve patient outcomes.

Recently, Dr. Berend presented research on the lateral partial knee replacement at the Current Concepts in Joint Replacement Winter Meeting in Orlando, FL. His research found that patients who have had a lateral partial knee replacement (as opposed to a medial partial knee replacement or total knee replacement) have a significantly better range-of-motion in the operative knee.

Healio.com published an article based on Dr. Berend’s findings:
