The Oxford® Partial Knee implant from Biomet Orthopedics is a partial knee implant designed to repair only one side of the knee (the medial side), making it much smaller than a total knee implant. In patients with only limited knee arthritis, known as medial compartment arthritis, Dr. Herrema may elect to perform a partial knee replacement. Some advantages of the Oxford® partial knee replacement are that it removes 75% less bone and cartilage, is less painful, enables a more rapid recovery, and provides more natural motion when compared to a total knee replacement. By retaining all of the undamaged parts, the joint may bend and function more naturally.
