Types of knee replacement surgery

We offer options that fit your goals and condition, including:

  • Total knee replacement (knee arthroplasty): It involves all three bones (thigh, shin and kneecap) that form the knee joint. Implants vary depending on your weight, size and activity level.
  • Partial knee replacement (knee resurfacing): Our orthopedic specialists can spare healthy tissue and bone with a less invasive procedure when damage is limited to a portion of the knee (inside, outside or front).

Minimally invasive knee replacement surgery

Parham Doctors' Hospital offers patients access to minimally invasive knee replacement surgery using MAKOplasty® Technology. This advanced technology allows for a shorter hospital stay and less recovery time.

Talk to your joint replacement surgeon to see if you are a candidate for minimally invasive knee replacement surgery.
