During the procedure, the surgeon will make a small cut in the knee. The damaged tissue and bone is removed and replaced with an implant that preserves the ligaments. The incision used is smaller than a total knee replacement, which replaces the entire knee joint.
The implant, also called a prosthesis, is made from metal and plastic parts. The implant for your knee will be made-to-measure so that it fits.
The surgeon will cut away the damaged parts of the bone, which are then cleaned. The prosthesis is fitted and then fixed in place using a special bone cement. The wound is closed using either stitches or clips and a dressing is applied.
