Unicondylar Knee Replacement

Partial / Unicondylar Knee Replacement

In some patients only one compartment is predominantly affected. These situations are best suited for joint conserving procedures like corrective osteotomies / unicondylar replacement. Since all the ligaments are preserved and as the procedure is minimally invasive, the recovery is rapid and function near normal.

This is also called uni-compartmental or Unicondylar knee replacement, as only one part of the knee which is the affected side is replaced with the artificial knee. Advantage of this procedure is that the incision is smaller with less blood loss. There is more natural function at the joint as one half of the knee is preserved. This procedure can be performed in patients with limited arthritis only and in those who are not obese and who do not have inflammatory arthropathy. It cannot be done on people who do heavy work.

Preservation of the natural joint to the maximum extent possible is the core philosophy of AJRI.
