MAKOPlasty partial knee replacement testimonial - 6 months post op

Share this post

With extensive osteoarthritis on one side of her right knee, our patient needed to have a partial knee replacement. 6 months later she says "I couldn't be happier. I can't believe how incredibly great my knee feels." She has been back on her bike, doing a lot of hiking and her knee doesn't bother her in the slightest. She says it feels as good as it has ever been. 
Knees do not wear out evenly. Sometimes one part of the knee is perfectly fine while another part is completely destroyed. Depending on where the damage is in your knee, a partial knee replacement may be an option for you.
