A surgical option for people with knee arthritis that is limited to the patellofemoral compartment anterior aspect of the knee is patellofemoral joint replacement, a type of partial knee replacement (also known as unicompartmental knee replacement).

Simply put, a unicondylar knee replacement entails replacing only a portion of the knee joint using a smaller incision than would typically be required for a whole knee replacement. Since the early 1970s, unicondylar knee replacements have been been out with varying degrees of success.

The knee joint’s deteriorated bone and tissue are removed during partial knee replacement surgery. When arthritis just affects a portion of the knee, it is done. A prosthetic implant, which is artificial, is used to replace the missing tissue. Your knee’s remaining portion is unharmed.
