Partial Vs. Complete Knee Replacement

Partial Vs. Complete Knee Replacement

by Bevon Findley (SU)
When it comes to partial or complete knee replacement surgery, once size certainly does not fit all. Your knees are the largest joints in your entire body. And because of the complex nature of the knee (the knee contains three compartments, cartilage, tendons, nerves, blood vessels and tissues held in place by bones and ligaments), they are especially vulnerable to damage caused by daily wear and tear as well as injuries and disease.

If you lead an active life that includes a lot of outdoor activities such as a cycling, running, or play sports (professionally or on an amateur basis), you are likely to face some form of injury sooner or later.

It often helps to have a better understanding of certain conditions, as being informed can often be good medicine by itself.

A broken bone is not a fun experience. Besides the pain, it requires careful treatment, and depending on the severity and location of the break, it may also need surgical intervention. Once you have been given appropriate care, the healing process can begin in earnest and your body is going to need as much help in healing as possible. This means allowing for adequate rest, nutritional support, and can even involve a lifestyle change, such as stopping tobacco use or avoiding certain activities, until and after your doctor tells you it is okay.
