Defining Total vs Partial Knee Replacement

If you have only one (1)  or two (2) compartments of the knee that is worn, than it is possible you can have a partial, or uni-compartmental or bi-compartmental knee replacement done, only replacing the part of the knee that hurts.

The knee is made of 3 articulating surfaces:
A. The Medial Compartment
B. The Lateral Compartment
C. The Patello-Femoral Compartment.

When a total knee replacement is done, all 3 compartments of the knee are resurfaced or replaced. This is needed if all 3 compartments of the knee are worn and symptomatic.
