Knee Surgery

Knee Surgery

Knee replacement surgeries are among the most common procedures we perform here at UnaSource.

UnaSource is an industry leader in joint replacement through total knee arthroplasty or partial knee arthroplasty. Patients often rave about being able to go home a couple hours after surgery and that the recovery time is relatively brief. The recovery period includes visits from a registered nurse and outpatient physical therapy.

Knee arthroscopy is used for diagnostic or therapeutic purposes, and surgeries may be recommended for torn ligaments, including ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) repair and PCL (posterior cruciate ligament) repair.

Minimally Invasive Knee Replacement

Total knee replacement surgery (also called knee arthroplasty) is used to replace the damaged or worn surfaces of the knee. The goal of replacing these surfaces with an implant or “prosthesis” is to relieve pain and increase mobility.
The traditional approach to knee replacement uses a long vertical incision in the center of the knee to view and access the joint, while minimally invasive total knee replacement uses a shorter incision and a different, less-invasive technique to expose the joint.

  • Reduced postoperative pain
  • Faster recovery period
  • Less cutting of tissue around the knee
  • Smaller incision
  • Surgical instruments used to prepare the femur and tibia and to place the implants properly
