- Conforming, spherical design minimizes contact stress throughout entire range of motion
- Curved inner geometry for minimal bone removal
The most widely used1 and clinically proven2,3 partial knee in the world
With 45 years of clinical heritage, the Oxford Partial Knee is the most widely used1 and clinically proven2,3 partial knee system in the world.
- Knee Reconstruction
- Partial Knee Replacement
- Mobile Bearing
- Partial Knee Arthroplasty
Survivorship at 15 years94.0%
At Minimum 15 Year Postoperative (432 knees)6
Survivorship at 20 years91.0%
91.0% Kaplan Meier Survivorship at min 20 years (14 knees)2
The Oxford Partial Knee offers surgeons a partial knee replacement that is less invasive and has demonstrated lower morbidity and pain scores when compared to total knee replacement.6
Reproducible Microplasty Instrumentation
Microplasty Instrumentation simplifies the surgical technique, providing for accurate and reproducible implant positioning.8 Microplasty instrumentation also shows a reduction in OR time of almost 9 minutes,9 reduced risk of dislocation10 and improved alignment11 compared to Phase 3 Instrumentation.
- Only true mobile meniscal bearing knee system approved for use in the U.S.
- Mobile bearing designed to remain fully congruent with the femoral and tibial components throughout entire range of motion5
- Clinically proven low wear rates with ArCom® Direct Compression Molded Polyethylene12
Anatomical shape for optimal bone coverage
- After one year, a randomized, controlled study showed that significantly more partial knee patients would have the operation again compared to total knee patients.13
- A multi-center study demonstrated decreased morbidity and complications of PKA compared to TKA14
Proven2 and reproducible technique
- With Microplasty® Instrumentation8
Best-in-class continuous education program
- Providing in-person and virtual training opportunities
- 46% of patients would choose a PKR over a TKR when presented with the various risks and benefits of both options.15 This is significantly higher than the 10% of knee replacement patients who receive a PKR today.16
Less Opioid Usage
- A study showed that PKR patients require fewer narcotics following surgery, for a shorter duration of use, less refills, and have a lower likelihood of narcotic requirement at 4 weeks.17
Important Safety Information
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. The Oxford Partial Knee 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.
