Our unique total knee resurfacing procedure applies the best aspects of a partial knee replacement to all of the knee’s surfaces. This ensures natural mobility, a full range of motion, and a faster recovery.
Understanding Your Knee’s Anatomy
Your knee is composed of the femur, tibia, and patella – otherwise known as the thigh bone, shinbone, and kneecap, respectively. The meniscus is the soft cartilage between the femur and tibia. It acts as a cushion that absorbs shock during motion. Arthritis, injury, and other diseases can damage that protective cushion, causing severe pain and difficulty performing daily activities.
Damage to the knee can occur in the following three compartments:
- Patellofemoral: behind the kneecap
- Medial compartment: on the inside of the knee
- Lateral compartment: outside of knee joint
