Which is better Total or Partial knee replacement? Pain only on inside (medial). Feels like ice pick. Is Stryker partial good?

Say goodbye to conventional modes of surgeries for knee replacement, hip replacements. Here is the newest innovative treatment- Stem Cell therapy. FDA approves this therapy for the treatment of varied sports injuries like broken knee injury, back injuries, pain, tennis elbow, rotatory cuff tears. The therapy is administered with Stem cell injections( prepared with patients' self blood/marrow). This is the highly recommended for athletes.

I had a Makoplasty partial (medial) in Oct. 2013. I am doing very well. Recovery was tough but I am a slow healer and don't tolerate pain very well. Glad I had a partial and even though therapy was hard I stuck it out and worked hard. good Luck.

Sue, are you still doing well with your MAKOplasty partial knee replacement. I'm considering have MAKOplasty on my inner knee at the Huron Valley Sinai Hospital by Dr. Mackey. I would appreciate any feedback you can share. Thanks.
