Patients who have part of their knee resurfaced are usually more active and over years find other parts of the knee become worn as arthritis spreads with age. It is possible to resurface other areas of the knee thereby covering all eventualities.

Patients who undergo this procedure have a higher rate of activity than those having a total knee resurfacing including competitive sport, dancing, tennis, swimming and most gym activity. Many patients ski and sail.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much physiotherapy will I require following a knee replacement?

Every patient is different but post knee surgery you should receive perhaps six or more physiotherapy appointments.
