Advanced Surgical Technique Provides a Partial Knee Replacement Option
The Orthopedic Surgeons at Holy Family Hospital’s Regional Center for Orthopedic Care are now using a minimally invasive surgical technique to perform partial knee replacements that conserves two-thirds of the knee when compared to a total knee replacement. If the patient is an appropriate candidate, this can mean a more natural feeling knee and shorter recovery for patients because the surgery is less invasive.
Join Dr. Hoerner to learn more about this option. “This bone- and tissue-preserving procedure provides an alternative solution for knee pain when the disease is present in one compartment,” explains Thomas Hoerner, MD, Orthopedic Surgeon. “For the right candidate, this coordinated approach allows us to keep the healthy portions of a patient’s knee and ACL and relieve them of their pain before the disease progresses to the whole knee.”
