What are the different types of Knee Replacement Surgery?

1. Total Knee Replacement:

Total knee replacement removes all weight-bearing, damaged knee cartilage, and bone and replaces it with a human-made metal or plastic prosthetic joint that mechanically replicates the knee function.

2. Partial Knee Replacement:

Partial knee replacement, or unicompartmental knee replacement, is the choice if only one part or compartment of your knee is severely damaged and requires a replacement rather than the entire joint.

3. Minimally Invasive Knee Replacement:

Newer minimally invasive knee replacement, or MIS, uses specialized surgical techniques that allow a 3- to 5-inch incision rather than the standard 8- to 12-inch incision. The smaller incision provides for recovery with potentially less scar tissue formation, less pain, and a faster healing period. Hospital stays are from one to three days.

4. Computer Assisted Surgery:

Knee replacement using computer-assisted Surgery, or CAS, is a computer-driven technology that uses computer-guided imagery during Surgery.

5. Bilateral Knee Replacement:

Bilateral Knee Replacement is for those who have both knees equally affected by cartilage damage and decreased mobility, and bilateral knee replacement is an option.

6. Revision Knee Replacement:

Revision knee replacement is for removing and replacing a prosthetic knee joint that is worn out, or that has failed.
