If your knee is damaged by any injury, it becomes difficult to walk, run, and to do works. You feel pain when sitting or lying down. Due to damage and inflammation in the knees, it becomes difficult to bend or flex your knees.
Knee Replacement Surgery is the common solution that provides complete pain relief. This modern surgical procedure is also known as Knee Arthroplasty. Knee replacement surgery can be performed as partial or total knee replacement surgery.
In traditional knee replacement surgery a 15-20 cm long incision made in the center of the knee to access the joint. The surgery takes longer recovery time. Due to the long recovery, the patient feels pain and must depend on the walker. But in minimally invasive surgery an incision of length less than 10 cm used.
- Shorter hospital stay
- Smaller incisions
- Limited blood loss
- Shorter rehabilitation periods
- Less perioperative pain
In this procedure, the knee is divided into three compartments
- the inside or medial compartment
- the outside or lateral compartment
- kneecap or the patellofemoral compartment
In unicompartmental knee replacement only the damaged compartment is replaced. Healthy bone and cartilage are left untouched.
- Minimally invasive surgery
- If total knee replacement surgery is needed in future it becomes easier to revise it.
- Preserves healthy part of the knee.
