Outpatient Partial Knee Replacement
What You Need To Know
The OJRCA Method
A partial knee replacement is a surgical treatment option that replaces or resurfaces only the damaged portion of the knee while maintaining knee ligaments and cartilage that are not affected by degenerative arthritis.
In this surgical procedure, a prosthesis (implant) takes the place of the affected portion of the knee. During the procedure, the surgeon will make a small incision to gain access to treat the affected compartment of the knee. The supporting structures of the knee are gently moved out of the way, which allows the surgeon access the arthritic compartment of the joint. Following this removal, the surgeon will prepare the surfaces of the knee to place the prosthesis.
You may be a good potential candidate for a partial knee replacement if you have:
“I had my surgery first thing in the morning, and was home by early evening, already walking”
“The entire experience from beginning to end was wonderful. I feel like 10 years have been added to my life and to be pain free is fantastic. I’m back to exercising, driving my car and playing full blast with my grandchildren!”
“Within 14 days after surgery I was walking with a little assistance from a cane and now am fully mobile and ready to start swinging a golf club 45 days after the surgery!”
“Dr. Clifford is an excellent surgeon, but also has a way to talk to and discuss the issues and concerns with his patients. I continue to tell everyone that asks, and some that don’t, how great it was working with him and what excellent results I had. I am very grateful I had him in my corner while going through these surgeries.”
“Dr. Clifford also insisted that I recuperate at home but that I go out for physical therapy. He said that he wanted his patients to “get up, get dressed and go out for physical therapy”. I believe that’s what saved me!”
“Dr. Clifford performed the second surgery with a fairly new and less invasive technique. What an amazing difference. I had the surgery or a Monday around noon and was home around 8pm the same night. ”
“No way! Was my first reaction to the idea that a hip replacement could be done as outpatient surgery. But now, having had both hips replaced six months apart and having returned home the same day for each, I am convinced, pleased, and walking around without pain for the first time in years.”
“I have never met another surgeon that truly loves what he does, cares about his patients and listens to what you have to say.”
