Patello-femoral Joint Replacement

A person experiencing pain going up and down stairs, may be suffering from arthritis of the front of the knee (which in medical terms is known as the patello-femoral or PFJ) compartment.

Although other surgical procedures may be performed to off-load this part of the joint, none give the patient relief from pain as consistently as replacement of this part of the joint.

Total Knee Replacement Surgery

Although the procedure is called knee replacement, it would be much more accurate to describe it as knee resurfacing in light of what happens in the procedure.

This is because the surfaces of the thigh and shin bones are skimmed to remove all the damaged cartilage and to create an even surface upon which the prosthesis can then be placed.

Uni-Compartmental Knee Replacement

Arthritis in the knee may start in either the medial (inner) or the lateral (outer) compartment.

If the arthritis is limited to either of these compartments, an experienced surgeon may be able to offer the patient a partial knee replacement. It is referred to as UKR or uni-compartment knee replacement.
