Partial knee replacement, or ‘unicompartmental knee replacement’ (UKR), is surgery that replaces only one side of the knee. The surgeon will trim damaged bone between the end of the thigh and the top of the shin. They will shape the ends of the thigh and shin bones to fit the artificial knee joint, which is usually metal or plastic.
This surgery typically takes place under epidural (spinal) or general anaesthetic. You may also require patellar resurfacing (replacement of the back of the kneecap).
