Partial Knee Replacement :-
If you are thinking about knee replacement, it is imperative you read this information.
It has been seen during surgeries that approximately 30% of the total knee replacements that are operated world wide, have only 1/3 of the knee damaged. But since there knee option available to most of the surgeons, therefore total knee replacement is the only answer. It is now considered to be unethical and unwise to operate and remove the cartilage and bone which is not damaged and would otherwise work good for 15-20 years more.
SO THINK AGAIN BEFORE GOING IN FOR KNEE OPERATION IS THE CENTRE OFFERING THIS OPTION?
That’s why the concept of partial knee replacement gained popularity. In UK and USA, this surgery is going on well for more than 20 years, with results more than 98% success [better than a total knee replacement].

Dr. Singh’s Views When Surgery is the last resort. Any patient with knee pain, and with drugs and physio not working, can be a candidate for this highly advanced operation. It is the surgeons choice and decision, depending upon the extent of cartilage damage, whether this procedure can be done or whole of the joint is to be changed. Sometimes the decision may be reversed during the surgery itself. How to decide who is eligible for this procedure? Decision of the surgeon to perform total and half knee surgery depends on the condition of the joint damage, experience & training of the surgeon and the implants available to the surgeon.
