UNICOMPARTMENTAL KNEE REPLACEMENT
Kayal Orthopaedic Center, PC treats patients suffering from severe knee trauma or osteoarthritis of the joint. Some patients are candidates for unicompartmental knee replacement, and NJ knee surgeon Robert A. Kayal, MD is an expert in this type of minimally invasive surgery.
What is Unicompartmental Knee Replacement?
Also called partial knee replacement, unicompartmental knee surgery utilizes small, non-invasive incisions. Instead of the entire knee, the surgery addresses only the damaged compartment (lateral, medial or patellofemoral). Kayal Orthopaedic surgeons leave healthy cartilage and bone in place while replacing damaged tissue with a long-lasting synthetic material. Because the procedure does not require total knee joint replacement, patients rehabilitate quickly and enjoy an expedited return to everyday life.
