Partial Knee Replacement at DRHC Dubai

Partial Knee Replacement (PKR), also known as Unicompartmental knee arthroplasty, is a surgical procedure to replace only the damaged or diseased part of the knee joint with an artificial implant. It is a less invasive alternative to total knee replacement for patients with arthritis or other conditions affecting only one part of the knee. At Dr. Rami Hamed Medical Center (DRHC) in Dubai, our expert orthopedic surgeons specialize in performing PKR procedures with precision and care.

What is Partial Knee Replacement?

Partial Knee Replacement (PKR) is a surgical procedure to replace only the damaged  part of the knee joint with an artificial implant. Unlike total knee replacement, which replaces the entire knee joint, PKR preserves the healthy parts of the knee. This makes PKR a less invasive option for patients with arthritis or other conditions affecting only one part of the knee.

How is Partial Knee Replacement Done?

The PKR procedure is performed under general or regional anesthesia. Dr. Rami Hamed will make a small incision in the knee and remove the damaged or diseased part of the knee joint. The remaining healthy bone and tissue are prepared to receive the artificial implant, which is then inserted into the knee joint. The incision is closed with sutures or staples, and a bandage is applied to the knee. You will be given instructions for post-operative care and rehabilitation.

Recovery and Rehabilitation

After PKR, you will need to undergo a period of rehabilitation to regain strength and mobility in your knee. Dr. Rami Hamed will provide you with a personalized rehabilitation plan, which may include:

  • Physical therapy exercises to improve knee strength and flexibility.
  • Use of assistive devices, such as crutches or a walker, to aid in walking.
  • Pain management techniques to control post-operative discomfort.
  • Follow-up appointments to monitor your progress and address any concerns.

FAQs

  • Who is a candidate for PKR?

Candidates for PKR are typically patients with arthritis or other conditions affecting only one part of the knee joint. Your orthopedic surgeon will evaluate your condition and determine if PKR is the right treatment option for you.

  • What is the recovery time after PKR?

The recovery time after PKR varies from person to person, but most patients can expect to return to normal activities within 4 to 6 weeks. Full recovery may take several months, depending on the individual's health and the extent of the surgery.

  • What are the risks of PKR?

PKR is a safe and effective procedure, but like any surgery, it carries some risks. These may include infection, blood clots, and damage to surrounding tissues. Dr. Rami Hamed will discuss the risks and benefits of PKR with you before the procedure.
