Oxford® Partial Knee


The most common reason Dr. Wainer recommends knee joint replacement for his patients is to relieve severe arthritis pain. Dr. Wainer may recommend knee joint replacement if you have: Symptoms of knee arthritis, including knee pain that keeps you up at night or prevents you from doing daily activities Knee pain that continues despite other treatments The goal of total knee replacement surgery  (also called "arthroplasty") is to decrease pain and restore function. For some patients, however, the osteoarthritis is limited to just one part of the knee.  These patients may be candidates for a partial knee replacement (also called unicompartmental knee replacement).  Dr. Wainer is one of the few surgeons in the Piedmont Triad area performing Oxford® Partial Knee Replacement surgery. In a partial knee replacement, Dr. Wainer only replaces the damaged compartment of the knee with man-made materials. The healthy cartilage and bone in the rest of the knee is left alone.  For patients that qualify for partial knee replacement, there are several advantages over total knee replacement surgery.  These include: A quicker recovery Less pain after surgery Less blood loss Also, because the healthy parts of the knee remain intact, patients often report that the partial knee replacement feels more "natural" than a total knee replacement.  A partial knee may also have better range of motion and bend better. Patients should keep in mind that with a partial knee replacement it is possible that future surgeries would be necessary should the healthy part of the knee later develop osteoarthritis.  After examining your knee and studying your individual case, Dr. Wainer can let you know if you are a potential candidate for an Oxford® Partial Knee Replacement.
