What Is Partial Knee Resurfacing?

Last updated 2 years ago

Do you suffer from osteoarthritis of the knee? Has a past knee injury impacted your joint function? Then you might be an ideal candidate for partial knee resurfacing, a procedure that can restore knee function without the need for total knee replacement.

Partial knee resurfacing is often performed as an outpatient procedure because of the minimally invasive nature of its technique. Damaged bone and cartilage can make it difficult to move the knee joint without stiffness and pain. Partial knee resurfacing addresses these problems by removing only the deteriorated parts of the joint and leaving healthy bone and cartilage. To facilitate joint function, the surgeon can introduce artificial joint parts that replicate those removed during the procedure. In as little as a few weeks, partial knee resurfacing recipients can be back to enjoying pain-free knee movement.

Are you a candidate for partial knee resurfacing? To find out, call Largo Medical Center at (727) 470-6826. Our Consult-A-Nurse associates can discuss the details of your condition and guide you to the appropriate Pinellas County professionals.
