Partial Knee Replacement FAQs

When part of the knee is damaged, only that part needs to be restored by opting for a Partial or Uni-compartmental Knee Replacement, saving the rest of the natural knee.

In the procedure, only 25% of the joint is resurfaced, leaving all the ligaments intact. It is an true resurfacing of the knee joint.

The few advantages of Partial Knee Replacement are:

  • A more natural fit, resulting in improved range of motion
  • Faster recovery and shorter hospital stay
  • A higher percentage of patients returning to sports and ability to walk longer
  • Complication rates are 70% lower than a Total Knee Replacement.

Yes, Zoi Hospitals is one of the first hospitals in South India to perform Computer Navigated Partial Knee Replacement. Our surgeries take place with some of the best technologies available, which is the Orthopilot. The device is designed to deliver the safest knee replacements with minimal invasion.

Basic movements like walking can be done once the patient comes out of anaesthesia. The patient can start climbing stairs comfortably after 2 weeks and other routine chores like office activities in 20 days. However, physical activities like running should only be started after 6 weeks from the surgery.

We believe in delivering the best of treatments at affordable prices. At Zoi Hospitals, you can opt for the surgery at Rs 1, 80, 000 Lakh (approximately).
