What Is Minimally Invasive Partial Knee Replacement Surgery?

A highly successful modern orthopedic procedure, a partial knee replacement involves replacing one of the three knee joint compartments—the medial (inside), lateral (outside), or patella-femoral (kneecap) compartment—with a custom prosthesis while leaving the internal ligaments (ACL and PCL) intact. Most commonly, the medial knee compartment is replaced.

A partial knee replacement is performed through small incisions to minimize any damage to the surrounding muscles and other soft tissues. Often performed in an outpatient setting, the procedure is typically followed by four to six weeks of physical therapy to promote healing and recovery.

Are You a Candidate?

A minimally invasive partial knee replacement may be a good option for you if you have severe osteoarthritis in a single knee compartment and you have not found sufficient symptom relief with conservative therapies, such as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), topical creams, and corticosteroid injections. On the other hand, if your knee damage extends beyond one joint compartment, a total knee replacement may be a better option for you.

I was able to get a office visit on short notice. It seemed to be a very busy day. Rebecca took the time to listen to all of my issues and discuss a plan for additional treatment. I have always been impressed with her knowledge and bed side manner.

Dr. Yakkanti did my knee replacement in June. He is an excellent surgeon with a great bedside manner. I have recovered nicely and plan to have my other knee replaced within the next year. I would highly recommend Dr. Yakkanti to anyone thinking about knee replacement!
