Partial Knee Replacement (PKR)

Many of us struggle with joint pain that limits our exercise and can slow our work. This lack of exercise can in turn lead to other negative health effects. We wait in pain until our knees get bad enough to require a Total Knee Replacement. Unfortunately, depending on how the knee is deteriorating, this may be the best option. However, new technology, available to surgeons at Mountain View Hospital, makes joint pain relief through Partial Knee Replacement a better option than ever before.

Partial Knee Replacement (PKR) is a procedure designed to relieve the pain caused by joint degeneration due to osteoarthritis (OA) and other knee problems. By selectively targeting the part of the knee damaged by OA, your surgeon can replace the diseased part of the knee while helping to spare the healthy bone and ligaments surrounding it. Without the new technology, this procedure has a much higher revision rate nationally than total joint replacement.

Now Mountain View Hospital robotic-arm assisted technology allows your surgeon to pre-plan component placement and surgical boundaries on a 3D model created from a scan of your unique anatomy. Robotic-arm technology, which is controlled by the surgeon’s hand during the procedure, brings a greater level of accuracy. This dramatically reduces revision rates and makes partial knee replacement a much better option to take into consideration.

Partial Knee Replacement has always been a less drastic form of knee surgery, but now getting a partial knee is more reliable than ever with our robotic-arm technology. You may want to consider getting a partial knee surgery now, instead of waiting in pain for a total knee later. (If your knee has deteriorated to the point that you need a total knee, this same technological advancement is available for that as well.)
