Unicompartmental Knee Surgery
This procedure involves resurfacing just one of the 3 joints in the knee when this is found to be damaged or worn out in isolation. In the vast majority of cases the area affected involves the inside of the knee joint (the medial compartment).
Historically partial knee resurfacings have not performed as well as total knee replacements but the with combination of modern design, improved instrumentation and techniques the outcomes are very much better. To date my outcomes for unicompartmental resurfacing are superior to total knee replacement and critically none have needed revision to a total knee replacement.

I could not possibly let the moment pass without thanking you for the operation on my knee. Strange to say it was all quite an unforgettable experience in the nicest way. My thanks also to your splendid team. Mr M.S. June 2015
I would just like to thank you very much for giving me a good lease of life, for your great skill and for being so caring. It was wonderful to be pain-free! Best Regards Mrs J.S. September 2015
I just wanted to tell you how very grateful I am to you for carrying out the operation – and doing such a fantastic job! I know many people who have had similar operations but none can compare their results with mine! There is no pain now from my knee, and I have great movement and flexibility. I will perfect the kneeling, it is too important to me to let it go. My biggest benefit, I think, has been my general fitness and health. Pain really wears you down and without it I feel several years younger!! So this card is just to say a really sincere “thankyou” to you and your very skilled staff. With warmest good wishes to you. I hope there will be many more patients who benefit from your wonderful skills! Yours very sincerely, Mrs C.W. August 2015
