What is Partial Knee Resurfacing?

Partial knee resurfacing is a less invasive surgical treatment option for adults with OA affecting only one or two compartments of the knee. Utilizing specialized instruments, your physician can remove only the diseased portions of the bone and cartilage and preserve the healthy cartilage, bone and soft tissue structures. Once the diseased portions of cartilage and bone are removed, these focal areas are resurfaced using highly anatomic iBalance ® UKA or PFJ implants adhered to bone to recreate the smooth action of the healthy joint.
