Knee ReplacementAn estimated 27 million people in the United States suffer from knee osteoarthritis, a chronic and painful joint condition that occurs when cartilage inside the knee breaks down. Seniors are at a higher risk for developing this condition, which can occur due to a previous injury, certain inflammatory or medical conditions, or simply from years of wear and tear.
If non-surgical treatments haven't been effective, you may want to consider a total knee or partial knee replacement surgery.

Knee Replacement Normas story
Total Knee or Partial Knee Replacement
Total knee replacement involves the replacement of all three surfaces—femur, tibia and patella—with metal and plastic components. Partial knee replacement involves the replacement of only one knee compartment (medial, lateral or patellofemoral) and may be an option for those who have painful, debilitating arthritis limited to one area of the knee. Only your doctor can determine if you are a candidate for this procedure.
During partial knee replacement, the surgical incision is usually smaller, resulting in less soft tissue trauma to and around the knee. Since more of the native knee is preserved, your knee may feel more natural than after a total knee replacement.1 Other potential benefits to partial knee replacement include:
- Accelerated rehabilitation1
- Faster operation
- Shorter hospital stay compared to a total knee replacement1
- Decreased post-surgical pain
