Partial Knee Replacement Q&A

Your knee is divided into three compartments, including:

  • Medial compartment (inside of the knee)
  • Lateral compartment (outside of the knee)
  • Patellofemoral compartment (area between kneecap and thighbone)

During a partial knee replacement, your surgeon removes and replaces only the damaged compartment, while maintaining the integrity of the healthy compartments. This procedure allows for a faster recovery and fewer risks of complications:

Your surgeon determines if you’re a good candidate for a partial knee replacement during your consultation.

If the cartilage damage in your knee has occurred in only one compartment, you may be a good candidate for a partial knee replacement.

Our surgeons use the least invasive techniques and specialized instruments to perform partial knee replacements.

During the procedure, your surgeon first removes the damaged cartilage and bone from the compartment and replaces the parts with prosthetic implants. Your surgeon inserts a spacer between the implants that allows them to glide smoothly during movement.

Our team will work with you closely to ensure you are completely prepared on the day of your surgery, from getting pre-operative prescriptions to preparing your home to planning your recovery. You will have a pre-operative appointment at the office or the hospital to learn about exercises, medications, and surgery instructions.

In addition to making sure you’re healthy enough for surgery, the goal of the pre-operative exam is to provide you with pre-surgical guidelines and therapies that minimize post-surgical pain and optimize recovery.

Recovery from a partial knee replacement varies. But it may take up to 4-6 weeks until you’re able to resume most of your usual activities.
