As we get older, the change can be seen in our body’s metabolic rhythm as well as the bones become weaker too. Modern lifestyle and reduced physical activity lead to knee replacement problems, weight gain, and other health-related diseases. This can cause the knee to become weak or damaged due to constant pressure on the kneecap.
Osteoarthritis is one of those diseases, which can happen if we do not pay attention to it. Partial knee replacement is also known as “knee arthroplasty”. It is a surgical procedure performed on patients with osteoarthritis.
What is Osteoarthritis?
Osteoarthritis (OA) is a joint disease. It is a disease that develops over time and increases with age.

Dr. Tanveer Singh Bhutani has been a specialist in the field of knee replacement procedures for many years. At Eva Hospital Ludhiana, Dr. Tanveer Bhutani and his team members recognize the severity of the problem and provide the best treatment to patients, either partial or total knee replacement.
As an orthopedic specialist hospital, EVA prides itself on using the latest technology and achieving significant success in partial and total knee replacement surgeries.
Partial Knee Replacement
It is a surgical procedure and is performed only after diagnosis and full consultation. This surgical process only applies to the part of the knee that is damaged and is replaced with an artificial implant.
Partial knee replacements take less time to heal. Patients are usually advised to rest and make changes in diet. However, some patients may need extra support while walking until they recover to regain their strength. Partial knee replacement is different from total knee replacement in the following ways:
- Small surgical incision
- Treats only the damaged part and preserves the rest of the knee
- It activates the knees in less time.
- Patient satisfaction
- Used for general patients who need repair for only one part
- Total knee replacement is only for patients with two or more damage to the knee compartments.
When non-surgical treatments don’t work for patients then they prefer partial knee replacement. Continuous pain and mobility problems are also caused by surgical treatment.
Under the expert guidance of Dr. Bhutani, Eva Hospital has been assisting patients in Punjab for many years. The whole process is safe and effective for quick recovery. Below are the several benefits of partial knee replacement:
- Relief from knee pain
- Increase in mobility over time.
- Sustainable for the long time period
- Helps in repairing deformed knees.
- Successfully performed for all age groups.
In EVA, Patients are diagnosed on the basis of case-by-case. X-rays, magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), and blood tests may be required depending on the patient’s condition. Detailed counseling before and after surgery is provided during the examination which may include any complications. Partial knee replacement can seem like a complicated and tedious process, but it can be smooth and easy with the right doctors.
