Joint Replacement Procedures

Cartilage Repair Procedures - ACI

Unicompartmental (partial) Knee Replacement

Partial knee replacement is an option for patients with very localized damage to one part of the knee joint - most frequently the medial (inside) part. Patients benefit from a smaller incision, better motion and a quicker recovery than standard total knee replacement. 


Osteotomies - DFO

Patellofemoral Replacement

Patellofemoral replacement is also a partial replacement, specifically for the treatment of arthritis localized to the area of the knee behind the patella (kneecap).

Meniscal Repair Procedures - Meniscal Transplant

Total Knee Replacement

Total knee replacement is the standard procedure for the treatment of advanced osteoarthritis. In this procedure, all parts of the knee joint are replaced with metal and plastic inserts, similar to crowning a tooth.

Patient-specific Custom-fit Replacement (ConforMIS)

This recently developed joint replacement technology is manufactured specifically for the individual patient based on a CT or MRI scan. It offers the benefit of preserving more bone than traditional joint replacements.
