Uniknee Replacement Surgery India
(Package: $4000, 7 Days Stay)

Uniknee replacement or unicompartmental knee replacement is similar to the total knee replacement, however the difference is that only one side of the knee that is affected by the osteoarthritis gets replaced. It is less complicated than the total knee replacement. It involves only smaller incisions, minimal bone loss and so it leads quicker recovery.

The healthy half of the knee joint is untouched. The prosthesis is not involved in interfering the existing nerves, tendons and ligaments. So, natural stability and balance are retained as usual as the other healthy half of the joint of the knee. The kneecap is positioned in the same place, so that the patient is enabled to regain its strength in the quadriceps.
