Could you be treating your patients with a partial knee replacement?
If only one compartment of the knee is damaged, then partial knee replacement (PKR) could be a viable surgical option. With the right indications, partial knee arthroplasty (PKA) is an alternative to both total knee arthroplasty (TKA) and high tibial osteotomy.
Research1,2 shows that nearly 50% of all knee replacement patients could be candidates for partial knee arthroplasty (PKA), and Oxford Partial Knee replacement patients are 2.7 times more likely to be satisfied than total knee patients in their ability to perform activities of daily living3.
With over 35 years’ clinical experience the Oxford Partial Knee is the most widely used4, clinically proven5 partial knee system in the world. Oxford PKR patients have demonstrated increased patient satisfaction3, better functionality6 and fewer complications7* compared to total knee patients.
The Oxford Partial Knee comes with the US's only lifetime knee implant replacement warranty†. It's your assurance that Zimmer Biomet not only makes a proven partial knee, but we stand behind it 100%.

- Anatomical shape of tibial component for optimal bone coverage
- Conforming, spherical design minimizes contact stress throughout entire range of motion4

Important safety information
In the United States (US), the Oxford Partial Knee is intended for use in individuals with osteoarthritis or avascular necrosis limited to the medial compartment of the knee and is intended to be implanted with bone cement; it is not indicated for use in the lateral compartment or for patients with ligament deficiency. Potential risks include, but are not limited to, loosening, dislocation, fracture, wear, and infection, any of which can require additional surgery.
