partial knee replacement

You may have damage to only one side of your knee. If this is the case you may be suitable for a partial knee replacement which leaves the rest of the knee intact. It has the advantage of being a smaller procedure, with a quicker recovery.

However not everyone is suitable for this type of surgery and Mr Waters always warns patients that even if the plan is to perform a partial, he may need to change to a total knee replacement depending upon how the knee looks at surgery.
