Partial knee replacement is a minimally invasive treatment option for people with knee pain from arthritis which has failed to improve with conservative treatment options. Partial knee replacement is also referred to as a "uni" or unicompartmental knee replacement.
Partial knee replacement is a great option for people who have arthritis that only affects a portion or one compartment of the knee. For many patients with knee arthritis, the arthritis only involves the inside (medial) compartment of the knee. When this is the case partial knee replacement is a great option which offers less pain, more natural motion and quicker recovery times when compared to total knee replacement.
