By Robert Brown Subscribe to RSS | December 27th 2011 | Views:

It is a well known fact that human body is a machine and this machine is very delicate as well as complicated because even a minor disorder in any part of the body can lead to a great problem in physical functioning of the body. Therefore, if you want to be happy then it is important to be healthy and it is essential to take special care of our body in order to keep it healthy. Knee joint is a very important part of our body but there are many people who suffer pain in their knee joints. The main reason for pain in knee joint can be either severe injury or some disease. The only way to get rid of this pain is Knee Replacement. The two types of knee replacement surgeries are Partial Knee Replacement surgery and Total Knee Replacement surgery.

Partial Knee Replacement surgery provides a lot of relief to the people who are suffering from severe pain in their knee joint. It is a surgical treatment for any kind of knee joint disorder. It is also referred to as unicompartmental knee arthroplasty. In Partial Knee Replacement surgery conducted by the orthopedic surgeons, the inner and outer part of the knee which is damaged is replaced by a metal implant whereas the rest of the knee is left as it is. The best part of this surgery is that only the damaged part of the knee joint is replaced. This surgery is the best treatment for those patients who are suffering from osteoarthritis.

Partial Knee Replacement surgery is also suitable for the patients who have severe knee arthritis and no other treatment is curing the ailment. Such patients are advised to go for this surgery. However, this surgery will not be effective if the disease of arthritis have spread in a larger area beyond the inner and outer of the knee. Moreover, patients who are above 55 years of age can go for Partial Knee Replacement surgery but in case of physically weak patients it may be risky to go for the surgery.

It is said that Partial Knee Replacement surgery is more beneficial than total knee replacement surgery because in this surgery a small incision is made. In this surgery bleeding is also less and patients recover much faster. As soon as they are discharged from the hospital they have to undertake physical therapy and rehabilitation program which helps in speedy recovery of the patient and they are kept under observation.
