Types of knee replacement surgery we offer
We offer options to fit your goals and lifestyle, including:
- Total knee replacement: This procedure involves all entities (thigh, skin, kneecap) that form the knee joint. The implants vary depending on your weight, size and activity level.
- Partial knee replacement: When damage is limited to a portion of the knee (inside, outside or front), we can save healthy tissue and bone in a less invasive procedure. Partial knee replacement is also called resurfacing.
