Abstract

Knee replacement surgery is the most performed inpatient procedure in the geriatric population in the United States with over a million knee replacements performed annually.

Partial Knee replacement (PKR), also known as uni-compartmental knee arthroplasty (UKA) is a localized and specific alternative to a total knee replacement in patients with limited osteoarthiritis affecting only specific segments of the knee. Although patients whom have undergone partial knee replacements enjoy successful outcomes, revision surgery is more often warranted in this population than patients whom have undergone total knee replacement.2 Post operative rehabilitation of total or partial knee replacement surgeries should thus crucially incorporate interventions addressing pelvic stability in the frontal plane as instability and weakness of the hip abductors may contribute to excessive medial-lateral moments of the knee during dynamic single leg stance activities, contributing to knee pain.
