Partial (Unicompartmental) Knee Replacement
A unicompartmental knee replacement, also called "partial" knee replacement, involves only a portion of the knee that is resurfaced. This procedure is an alternative to total knee replacement for patients whose disease is limited to just one area of the knee.
Partial knee replacements are performed using a smaller incision, which typically allows patients to spend less time in the hospital and return to normal activities sooner than total knee replacement patients. There are a range of treatments for knee osteoarthritis and our expert providers will work with you to provide personalized options that will best relieve your individual osteoarthritis symptoms.
