Dr. Barrack Discusses Partial Knee Replacements

If you have knee arthritis and are experiencing pain in the knee that does not respond to medications or injections, you may think that a total knee replacement is your only option.

When arthritis involves only the inside half of the knee, which is common, there is an exciting new option called minimally invasive partial knee replacement.

Partial knee replacement involves a smaller muscle sparing incision keeping 75% of your healthy knee, allowing for more rapid recovery, less pain and more normal motion. 

For the right patient with knee arthritis, this approach offers a lot of advantages over traditional knee replacement.
