Partial Knee Replacement Surgery Can Improve Your Mobility and Quality of Life
If you’re suffering from severe knee pain and limited mobility due to a degenerative condition such as osteoarthritis, having a partial knee replacement can make a huge difference in your quality of life. Imagine being able to walk to the corner store, climb stairs, and exercise without discomfort. That’s what you can expect when you turn to Tampa General Hospital for partial knee replacement surgery.
The TGH Difference
At Tampa General Hospital’s Joint Center, we take a multidisciplinary approach to treatment. Our team of orthopedic specialists includes physicians, surgeons, physical and occupational therapists, registered nurses, advanced practice nurses, and others, all of whom will help guide you through every aspect of the partial knee replacement process, from financial considerations to recovery.
TGH is a high-volume center, and our board-certified and fellowship-trained surgeons have undergone extensive specialty training and have performed 67 knee revision procedures in 2019, giving them a level of expertise in orthopedic care that’s hard to match. With low post-surgical complication and readmission rates, you can be confident you’ll be receiving the best care possible. In fact, 89 percent of patients surveyed said they would recommend TGH to others.
The Benefits of Our Advanced Technologies
Additionally, TGH takes advantage of the latest surgical technologies to achieve the best possible results. For example, we offer MAKOplasty® partial knee resurfacing using the RIO™ Robotic Arm Interactive Orthopedic system, which provides our surgeons with real-time visual, tactile, and auditory feedback to facilitate optimal joint resurfacing and implant positioning. The resulting benefits for our patients include:
- Less implant wear and loosening
- More bone sparing
- Smaller incisions and less scarring
- Reduced blood loss during surgery
- Shorter recovery times
And for patients with a knee prosthetic that has broken or worn out, we offer joint replacement revision surgeries that provide the same advantages as our other surgeries.
At TGH, our commitment to provide patients with outstanding surgical outcomes has contributed to our program’s many accolades, including placement on U.S. News & World Report’s 2020-21 list of America’s Best Hospitals for Orthopedics. Additionally, we were recognized as a higher performing hospital for knee replacements. If you’re seeking knee pain treatment with a partial knee replacement, you can find an approved physician and obtain a referral into our program by using our Physician Finder or by calling us toll free at 1-800-822-DOCS (3627).
