What is a Partial Knee Replacement?

Partial knee replacements (unicompartmental knee replacements) are a type of knee replacement that only replaces the arthritic part of the knee. Patients with a partial knee recover from their surgery faster and are more likely to have a knee that feels like a normal knee compared to a total knee replacement.

Partial knee replacements only replace the part of the knee that is arthritic. In a total knee replacement, there are two ligaments that are normally removed – the anterior cruciate ligament and the posterior cruciate ligaments. In addition, partial knee replacements allow you to keep the good cartilage that is in your knee. Unlike a traditional knee replacement, partial knees are considered resurfacing surgery.

What are the different types of partial knee replacements?

There are a few different types of partial knees. The inside of your knee is considered the “medial compartment”. Meanwhile the outside of the knee is the “lateral compartment”. The part underneath the knee cap is called the “patellofemoral compartment”. Each of these compartments can be replaced independently with a lateral, medial or patellofemoral replacement. Sometimes two compartments can be replaced, a “bicompartmental replacement”
