Has anyone had a partial knee replacement (also known as a makoplasty)? I am 37 years old and typically ride 2-3 times weekly year round. My orthopedist saw a 2 cm diameter full thickness cartilage erosion on my medial femoral condyle, as well as the corresponding meniscal damage. So far there has been only partial tears and strains to the anterior cruciate and the medial collateral. As my surgeon stated, I have the knee of a 60 year old with arthritic development, etc. I have been in a brace for months that tries to relieve the pressure on the inside of the knee. I have to wear the brace at work, riding, out for a drink at a bar, etc. And it is not seeming to help like the dr wanted it to. So surgery is likely my next option. Has anyone had one of these surgeries? recovery time? strength after recover? etc....
I appreciate your help
Eric
