Your knee surgery options.
Whether your knee pain is due to osteoarthritis, injury or wear and tear, we offer multiple options for repair:
- MAKOplasty® partial knee resurfacing
If you are active and have early- to mid-stage knee osteoarthritis, MAKOplasty is an innovative solution. Using robotic arm technology, our surgeons precisely resurface only the painful, arthritic parts of the knee, preserving natural joint motion. This relieves pain caused by joint degeneration without the extensive rehab required for a total knee replacement. Other benefits include less scarring, quicker recovery and a shorter hospital stay. MAKOplasty is offered at Sharp Coronado Hospital.
- Oxford® partial knee replacement
This advanced partial-knee surgery preserves the healthy part of the joint, enabling the knee to bend better and retain a more natural function. Results include less pain, shorter hospital stay and a quicker return to normal activities.
- Total knee replacement
Also called arthroplasty, this surgery replaces the bones affected by osteoarthritis. Metal and plastic parts are used to cap the ends of the bones that form the knee joint and the kneecap. You may want to consider this surgery if you have severe osteoarthritis or a serious knee injury. Following surgery, you should be able to resume most normal activities within three to six weeks.
