Question

Can I get by with a partial knee replacement?

Answer

"Compartments in the knee are like tires on a car. If you have four worn-out tires, it does no good to replace one. But if you have four new tires – and only one gets damaged – why replace all four?" said Dr. Brian Ceccarelli. Likewise, a partial replacement – not a total– should be considered when only one knee compartment is damaged. But how do you know?
