Minimally Invasive Medial Partial Knee Arthroplasty

Keith R. Berend, MD and Mr. Christopher Dodd, FRCS

Unicompartmental knee arthroplasty has evolved over the past 40 years to now be considered an appropriate surgical management strategy for symptomatic osteoarthritis of the medial compartment of the tibiofemoral joint. Developments in surgical instrumentation and implant design, patient selectivity and more accurate pre-operative planning have led to reported improvements in clinical outcome.

In this VJO presentation, Mr. Christopher Dodd, FRCS describes the Oxford® Partial Knee: an implant that is less invasive and has demonstrated less post operative and more natural motion when compared to total knee replacement. Keith R. Berend, MD demonstrates his surgical technique.

The long-term clinical performance of the Oxford® Partial Knee is supported by world-wide clinical studies. It is the only partial knee replacement that rivals the clinical heritage of total knee replacements.

For surgeons who have concern over the risk of femoral loosening with the single peg Oxford knee, or seek an improved surface area of contact in full flexion, the twin peg implant offers an excellent alternative.
