How do I know if I need Total Knee Replacement or Partial Knee Replacement?

When you have knee pain and it alters how you function, all you really want is immediate relief. But if immediate relief can’t come except through three months of rehabilitation after a total knee replacement, maybe you want to look at other alternatives. In this video, Dr. Mays talks about the Unicompartmental Knee Replacement (or Partial Knee Replacement) and explains how some patients may be candidates for this outpatient procedure that can yield quicker pain-reducing results than the traditional total knee replacement.
