Pain in your knee can have many causes. This type of pain also has a range of treatments, from physical therapy to orthopedic surgery. We always strive to provide our patients with the least invasive treatment options first. But sometimes, your problem is serious enough that it requires a surgical solution such as a partial or total replacement of your joint.

When joint replacement surgery is needed, our Orthopaedic Surgical team has the expertise and experience to see you through the entire process and get you moving again. We will work with you to determine the best course of treatment, based on your individual circumstances.

Knee Replacement

Total Knee Replacement

An incision is made to reach damaged bone and cartilage, and replace them with an artificial joint made of metal alloys, high-grade plastics, and polymers. A CT-based, custom pre-navigation system is sometimes used in planning before surgery.

Partial Knee Replacement

In this less-invasive technique for people with arthritis localized to one area within the knee, a single compartment of the knee is resurfaced with metal and plastic components. There are three types of partial knee replacements, depending on the location of your arthritis:

Patellofemoral—Partial knee replacement for those with knee arthritis that is confined to the patellofemoral (knee cap) compartment of the knee.

Medial Oxford—Implantation of a mobile-bearing prosthesis in the medial (inside) compartment of the knee.

Lateral Oxford—Implantation of a fixed-bearing prosthesis in the lateral (outside) compartment of the knee.

  • Partial knee replacements and total knee replacements have similar outcomes and complications
  • Faster recovery with partial knee replacement
