The knee is such an important part of your body and your structure. Typically known as the "hinge" joint, it is the largest joint in the body and allows the leg to flex and extend. It is involved in quite a bit of your daily movement and, of course, walking. If your cartilage becomes damaged, the bones end up rubbing together, causing friction and pain, and in some cases, deterioration. If you're suffering from a serious injury or have already been through minor surgery, Maryland Orthopedic Institute can help determine if you are a good candidate for a knee replacement. Dr. Farrell treats patients who suffer from a variety of knee problems such as arthritis, ligament tears, meniscus tears, tendonitis, and more.

A few instances that would qualify a person for knee replacement is:

  • Being in Daily Pain
  • Significant Knee Stiffness
  • Severe Pain Restricting Work
  • Restrictions in Daily Life
  • Damage from Arthritis
  • Significant Deformities

If surgical treatment is necessary, patients will receive the best orthopedic care at our facility.

Types of Knee Surgeries

We can provide the following types of knee surgeries:

  • Arthroscopy of the Knee Joint
  • Uni Condylar Knee Replacement (Partial Knee Replacement)
  • Total Knee Replacement (TKR)

Arthroscopy of the knee joint is when an arthroscope is inserted into the knee joint and used to repair the damaged area. The benefits of this type of surgery include smaller incisions, faster healing, a more rapid recovery, and less scarring. It is often performed on an outpatient basis and you are able to return home the same day.

Uni Condylar knee replacement is when part of the knee is replaced through a smaller incision than what would normally be used for a total knee replacement. The knee joint consists of three compartments—the patellofemoral and medial and lateral compartments between the femur and tibia. Usually, only one compartment wears out—quite often the medial one. A total knee replacement is a surgery that resurfaces an arthritic knee joint with an artificial metal or plastic prostheses.
