Advantages of Partial Knee Replacement

Advantages of Partial Knee Replacement.

Multiple studies show that most patients who are appropriate candidates for unicompartmental knee replacement have good results with this procedure.

The advantages of partial knee replacement over total knee replacement include:

Quicker recovery

Less pain after surgery

Less blood loss

Lower risk of infection and blood clots

Also, because the bone, cartilage, and ligaments in the healthy parts of the knee are preserved, many patients report that a unicompartmental knee replacement feels more natural than a total knee replacement. A unicompartmental knee may also bend better.
