PARTIAL OR "UNI"- COMPARTMENTAL KNEE REPLACEMENT
Uni-compartmental knee replacement is indicated in suitable individuals who have arthritis in one compartment of the knee causing pain, dysfunction and disruption of desired activities. This can be either the medial(inner) side, the lateral(outer) side or rarely just the patello-femoral joint(the knee cap joint).
The aim is to relieve pain and increase function.
The details of the procedure, including the potential risks, the post-operative course and the expected outcomes will be detailed at length by Dr Beer at your appointment.
You will be provided with written information regarding your surgery and rehabilitation at your appointment.
Any questions you have will be addressed at this time.
