Learn Which Knee Replacement you may Need
Joint knee replacements can be stressful when you first learn you need one, and the knee pain unbearable. Trinity Orthopedics knows that any procedure can be stressful. We also believe that an educated patient is the best patient, and when you know more about your procedure it puts you at ease. In this video, Dr. Nicholas Iagulli of Trinity Orthopedics explains the difference between the two types of joint knee replacements; full joint replacement and partial knee replacement.
If you have medial or lateral compartment arthritis and the cartilage is still in good condition, it would be more beneficial for you to receive a partial knee replacement. There will be a smaller incision, a more natural feel in the knee replacement and a quicker recovery time with a partial knee replacement.
The most common knee replacement is the full joint replacement, because it is uncommon for just one compartment of the knee to be damaged. Knee injuries are usually more complex and involve torn cartilage and more than one compartment of the knee. When a full joint knee replacement is needed the implant has a great success rate, and Trinity Orthopedics makes sure it is the best treatment for that individual.
