    Partial Knee Replacement Surgery

    What is Partial/Unicondylar knee replacement surgery?

    • Partial knee replacement primarily involves removing/resurfacing one of the condyles of knee(commonly medial condyle) following osteoarthritis, traumatic arthritis or any other cause leading to loss of cartilage in one particular area
    • The damaged surfaces are refashioned and fixed with smooth metal buttons with to without the use of cement
    • The metal implants can be made of Cobalt-Chromium alloy, zirconium coated or oxinium coated
    • It is a minimally invasive variety of knee replacement where only the damaged part of the knee joint is replaced while preserving the intact joint surface.
    • The patient is relieved of the pain and most of the natural components of the knee are retained

    Preservation of knee ligaments


    • Osteoarthritis of the knee is defined as age related wear and tear of the knee joint. The joint cartilage starts getting thinner and worn which leads to exposure of bare bone surfaces which rub against each other during movement leading to pain.
    • Osteoarthritis of the knee also leads to the damage of ligaments and meniscus tissue which can result in knee laxity and instability while walking.
    • Progressive damage can also lead to deformity(inward or outward bending) of the knee joint in later stages of the disease.
    • Moderate grade of osteoarthritis with unicompartmental involvement, I.e., disease is restricted to one part of the knee and the rest of the knee structures are preserved
    • No significant knee deformities
    • Relatively young age group
