Partial Knee Replacement Surgery

What is Partial Knee Replacement Surgery?

Partial knee replacement surgery is designed for the growing number of patients who would like minimally invasive surgery in overcoming knee pain. This procedure spares healthy bone and ligaments that are sacrificed in total knee replacements.

The DeuceTM partial knee replacement surgery is an innovative technique which only replaces two thirds of the knee, and leaves the healthy bones and ligaments intact.

What are the benefits of partial knee replacement surgery?

Some of the benefits of having a DeuceTM partial knee replacement are:

  • More natural feeling and stability in the knee

  • Less post-operation pain

  • Less physiotherapy

  • Shorter recovery period

  • Greater ability to continue with exercise.

What will happen during my partial knee replacement?

When you meet with your consultant surgeon they'll ensure that you have the opportunity to ask any questions you may have about your partial knee replacement, they'll discuss with you what'll happen before, during and after the procedure and any pain you might have. Take this time with your consultant surgeon to ensure your mind is put at rest. We know that having an operation of any type can be stressful so we've created a short downloadable guide that you might find useful to print off and use to write down any questions you may have. Do take this with you to your consultation.

How is the operation performed?

Traditional total knee surgery replaces the femur, tibia and patella. It also sacrifices the ligaments, whilst not fully compensating for their function.

The DeuceTM partial knee replacement surgery uses an implant that preserves the ligaments.

What is the recovery time?

A major advantage of choosing partial knee replacement as opposed to total knee replacement is that the recovery time is substantially less. You will usually be allowed to go home the day after your procedure and be able to put your full weight on your knee immediately. 

You will likely need to use a walker, walking stick or crutches for the first few weeks. After this adjustment period, you should be able to walk freely with ease and begin to benefit from the procedure’s results.

To help you in your recovery, you will be given physiotherapy exercises to complete for up to six months following your surgery.
