02 Apr Partial Knee Replacement
When it comes to arthritis-related knee pain, some adults may benefit from a partial knee replacement (PKR), also known as unicompartmental knee replacement. PKR is less common than the total knee replacement procedure. Many joint replacement surgeons may only do two to five of these surgeries per year. We recently had the pleasure of sitting down with Brian Perkinson, M.D. of the Bone and Joint Institute of Tennessee to discuss this procedure. A high volume, specially trained partial knee replacement surgeon, Dr. Perkinson performs approximately 75 of these surgeries per year.
