Partial knee replacementgreenspun.com : LUSENET : About Joints : One Thread
I heard Dr. Hungerfod (not sure which one) on WBAL discussing a process for a partial knee replacement for younger or more active people who are not quite ready for a total replacement. I would like more information on this and if I may be a candiate for this procedure. Thank you

I had partial knee replacement 4 weeks, was told it would be good for me, because I was a very active 55 year old, and part of my knee was still good. Have had a lot of trouble so far, knee swells, can't bend it. Doing pt three times a week,was told people who have partial knee,usually don't have to have pt at all. Don't know what happened,nothing I was told before surgery has happened!

I had surgery on Sept. 16,2003 and continue to have pain. MY knee is solid, but the pain is actually worse. I am told to wait 1 year and see. I guess I don't have to long to wait, but I have had about enouth.
