Knee Pain? Partial Knee Replacement Might Be An Option

Dr. Barber, Knee Pain? Partial Knee Replacement  in Mobile AL

Many people suffering from knee pain avoid seeking help because they fear being told that they will require total knee replacement. Often there is a better option for patients living with arthritis pain, but wishing to remain active. Partial knee replacement is a less invasive surgery with a much quicker recovery that can aid in restoring normal function. These procedures are often performed on an outpatient basis. Because all of the knee ligaments are retained, the motion of a partial knee replacement is typically greater and the mechanics are remarkably similar to that of a normal knee. Determining if a partial knee replacement is the right choice requires a careful evaluation by a surgeon who is well-versed in all of the options available and can guide you to the best treatment for YOUR knee.
