A partial knee replacement is designed to replace arthritic bone in one or two compartments of the knee. It’s a smaller surgery compared to total knee replacement, and results in less pain and a quicker recovery period.
How long will my partial implant last?
Today’s partial knee replacements are far more successful than they were in the past. They used to be seen as a temporary measure before a total knee replacement. While that can still be the case, when done correctly and in the right patients, a partial replacement can last for 20+ years.
What is the cost of Nano Partial Knee Replacement?
Traditional partial knee replacement can range from $35,000 to $65,000, depending on a few different factors. Since the hospital stay with this surgery is shorter than for total knee replacement, patients can expect the cost to be 10-20% lower. We will meet with you during your private consultation to discuss all your pricing options for partial knee replacement surgery so you can adjust your expectations accordingly.
Are there activity limitations after a partial knee replacement?
The answer to this question depends on the patient. In most cases, we recommend opting for low-impact sports and exercises after partial knee replacement. For example, we may suggest biking, walking, and swimming, as opposed to jogging, to prevent excess wear on your joint.
