Knee pain, swelling, a feeling of instability, reduced mobility – these are all signs that indicate that you should visit an orthopedic doctor. If the problem cannot be solved conservatively (physical therapy), arthroscopy of the knee joint will follow.
Used in cases where only one part of the knee is damaged, most often the inner and less often the outer part of the knee or the patellofemoral joint. The prefix “uni” means that only part of the damaged knee joint is replaced.
Thanks to the development of arthroscopy, knee surgeries have become much simpler and safer. Major problems are solved with minimally invasive methods, and after a well-performed operation, the return to previous activities is 100% with minimal pain.
If your knee is damaged by fractures, frequent injuries, or arthritis with consequent pain, recurrent swelling, deformity of the lower extremities, and limitation of the range of motion, the most likely solution to your problems is the installation of a partial or total knee endoprosthesis.
