  • Knee Replacement Options at OrthoColorado Hospital

    When you have a knee injury or arthritis, simple pleasures like walking and shopping can become unbearable. Knee replacement — either full or partial — can reduce or eliminate pain, allow easier movement and get you back to your quality of life.

    Knee replacement surgery may be considered for people suffering from arthritic knee pain, or trauma to the knee joint that can severely limit the activities of daily living. It is only recommended after careful examination and diagnosis of your particular joint problem, and after conservative measures such as exercise, physical therapy and medications have proven ineffective.

    Knee Replacement Services Offered:

    • Partial Knee Replacement
    • Total Knee Replacement
    • Minimally Invasive Total Knee Replacement
    • Revisions of Total or Partial Knee Replacements

    What is the difference between total and partial knee replacement?

    Total knee replacement is a surgical procedure where the worn out surfaces of the knee are resurfaced with metal and plastic components. Over time, the cartilage that cushions the bones can wear away, cause pain and discomfort, and make simple pleasures like walking and shopping unbearable. Knee replacement can reduce or eliminate pain, allow easier movement and get you back to normal life. OrthoColorado Hospital also offers minimally invasive total knee replacement.

    Partial knee replacement is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that resurfaces the worn, arthritic surfaces of the knee joint with metal and plastic components. Over time, the cartilage covering the ends of the femur (thighbone) and tibia (shinbone) can wear away causing pain, swelling and reduced mobility. If the wear is confined to one area of the knee, partial knee replacement may be an option.
