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.

Though non-surgical treatments are always considered initially, if using medication and a can aren’t delivering enough relief, you need to be referred to a consultant orthopaedic surgeon by your GP before you can be considered for surgery.
