Partial Knee Replacement
Partial knee replacement offers new treatment options for those living with painful early to mid-stage osteoarthritis of the knee, affecting only one or two components of the knee, and who prefer a less invasive surgery and more rapid recovery than total knee arthroplasty.
Bayfront Health Brooksville is the only hospital in Hernando, West Pasco and Citrus counties offering this advanced surgical option.
This minimally invasive system offers surgeons consistently reproducible precision in performing partial knee resurfacing.
The entire procedure only requires a four to six inch incision over the knee. Tactile, intelligent robotic arm technology and three-dimensional visualization of the knee guides the surgeon in controlled resurfacing of the pre-defined area, saving as much of the patient’s healthy bone and surrounding tissue as possible.
Using CT scan data, the surgeon follows a three dimensional computer model of the patient’s pre-surgical plan. During the procedure, real-time visual, tactile and auditory feedback facilitates ideal implant positioning and placement.
It is this level of planning and surgical accuracy in treating earlier stage knee osteoarthritis that can result in a more natural feeling knee and motion.
Partial knee resurfacing can be performed on an outpatient basis. It promotes rapid relief from pain, and in many cases, patients are permitted to walk soon after surgery, drive a car within two weeks and return to normal daily activities shortly thereafter.
