Partial knee replacement surgery aims at substituting the bone and cartilage of the diseased compartment of the knee damaged by arthrosis with plastic and metallic components. Healthy unaffected cartilage, bone and ligament structures are preserved.
Stability is important for common activities such as ascending and descending stairs, standing up from a seated position, getting into a car as well as more demanding activities like shopping and gardening.
Before undergoing your total knee replacement, your doctor will prescribe a complete physical examination to assess your condition and to ensure that there are no factors that could interfere with your operation.
Specialized personnel will, from day one after the surgery, take care of your recovery by defining the most suitable rehabilitation program for you and accompanying you through the gradual recovery process.
