Often all three regions of the knee joint are affected by osteoarthritis. Pain occurs alternately in different locations in the knee joint, on the lateral, the medial side or at the front of the knee.
In this case a total knee arthroplasty is the best solution for you. Many patients believe that large pieces of bone need to be removed. This conception is incorrect. Rather, small chips of bone will be removed from the surfaces of your knee joint. In this way the just enough space is created to resurface and cover your sensitive joint areas.
Modern, individual, personalised knee arthroplasty using 3D printing reconstructs precisely the shape of your knee. Compromises? Not necessary. The implant fits. From experience in each and every case.
Huge osteophytes in the dorsal part of your knee joint may have harmed your PCL. In these cases a posterior stabilised type of arthroplasty will be recommended, a PS knee.
