KNEE JOINT REPLACEMENT
Knee Replacement Options at Siegel Orthopaedics
This surgery replaces all knee joint surfaces with artificial components. TKR options include:
- Cemented - components glued to the bone
- Uncemented - components press-fit for bone ingrowth
- Hybrid - cemented femur with uncemented tibia
This less invasive surgery replaces just one knee compartment. UKR options include:
- Medial - replaces the inner knee compartment
- Lateral - replaces the outer knee compartment
- Patellofemoral - replaces the kneecap surface
This surgery replaces only the patellofemoral kneecap joint surface.
This complex surgery replaces a failed previous knee replacement.
The type of surgery Dr. Seigel recommends depends on factors like arthritis severity, age, activity levels, overall health, and patient preferences. His expertise across all knee replacement techniques allows a customized approach for each patient's needs.
