Knee Replacement Surgery
Getting you better is what we do best.
We are here to help with your chronic knee pain. Our world-class orthopedic team, using top-of-the line technology and innovative procedures, is here for you every step of the way.
At Sharp, we perform more knee replacement procedures than any other provider in San Diego County. And our unique Joint Endeavor® program was created with you in mind — to give you unparalleled support and comfort with the best possible results.
Your knee surgery options.
Whether your knee pain is due to osteoarthritis, injury or wear and tear, we offer multiple options for repair:
- Mako robot-arm assisted total or partial knee replacement surgery
If you are active and have early- to mid-stage knee osteoarthritis, Mako technology 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. Mako is offered at Sharp Coronado Hospital, at Sharp Coronado's Payne Family Outpatient Pavilion and at Sharp Grossmont 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.
