Knee replacement can alleviate years of pain and immobility due to arthritis. In this video, an expert illuminates the difference between partial and complete knee replacement surgeries.
A partial knee replacement only replaces half of the knee—the kneecap area, the inside of the knee, or the outside of the knee. This is an ideal surgical option for people who only have arthritis in one area of the knee. A full knee replacement resurfaces all of the aforementioned regions at once.
If you are interested in being evaluated for a partial or full knee replacement, make an appointment with on of our orthopaedic surgeons at MK Orthopaedics in Joliet, IL. You can schedule your first appointment by calling (815) 741-6900 today.
