Knee replacement surgery (partial)

Partial knee replacement, also known as uni-compartmental knee replacement, may be suitable for patients suffering from arthritis, where only one of the three main parts of the knee has been affected. The majority of patients needing knee replacement surgery will need a total knee replacement.

The inner half of the joint between the thigh bone and shin bone is called the medial compartment. Approximately one third of people with knee osteoarthritis will have it only in the medial compartment.

As a private patient, you can now choose to have a robotics-assisted partial knee replacement with an expert surgeon at Circle Reading Hospital. 

The NAVIO Surgical system helps some of the country’s leading surgeons to deliver even greater accuracy during your operation, while also eliminating the need for a CT scan before surgery.

The symptoms will be very similar to those in people with arthritis throughout the joint. Pain, stiffness and progressive deformity are the possible features. There may well be a pre-existing bow-legged deformity which predisposes to medial compartment arthritis as all the load passes through the inner half of the knee.

There are two options once the stage has been reached where knee replacement needs to be considered. Either total knee replacement or a uni-compartmental (partial) knee replacement. For a partial knee replacement, the deformity must be correctable, the ligaments must all be intact and the range of knee movement should be preserved.

The guide price for a partial knee replacement is £10,550. This excludes the initial consultation with a specialist, but includes pre-assessment, surgery and aftercare. A fixed quotation will be provided after the initial consultation.

Our Private Patient Advisors are available to answer your questions about becoming a patient from 8am to 6pm during the week and from 9am to 1pm on Saturday.
