Hello Anna,A partial knee replacement is surgery to replace either the inside (medial) or outside (lateral) parts of the knee. It is called a partial replacement because only one component of the damaged knee is replaced. In your case, the pain is likely to be significantly reduced after the partial knee replacement. The wear and tear is slightly increased in a replaced joint due to hypermobility. Though a good rehabilitation program is likely to help in retarding the wear and tear of joint. The supervised program (stretching and strengthening) consists of;1) passive stretching2) active stretching exercises3) exercises against weight4) exercises against resistance5) weight bearing exercises6) exercises in pool (hydrotherapy).These are likely to decrease your symptoms significantly and also reduce the wear and tear.Please feel free for your follow up questions.
I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.
