Partial Knee Replacement Surgery in Wisconsin
Aurora Health Care’s Orthopedic Surgeons Provide Expert Partial Knee Replacement Surgeries.
Approximately one in five Americans will develop knee arthritis that requires a partial knee replacement. When you need partial knee replacement, look to the orthopedic knee experts at Aurora Health Care.
Unlike total knee replacement, in which an arthritic or damaged knee joint is removed and replaced with a prosthesis, partial knee replacement surgery involves removing only damaged areas of the joint. Partial knee replacement can be great option for treating knee arthritis because you retain the undamaged parts of your knee (allowing for faster recovery) and you’ll enjoy better overall function of your knee. If done correctly, partial knee replacements can last 10-12 years.
Is Partial Knee Replacement Surgery Right For You?
At Aurora Health Care, our knee orthopedic surgeons recommend partial knee replacements for less than 10 percent of people who suffer from severe knee arthritis. Partial knee replacement is most successful if you:
- Weigh less than 185 pounds
- Benefit more from a faster-recovery, 10–12 year partial knee replacement than from a longer-recovery, 20+-year total knee replacement
