I have Oxford ( partial ) Knee Replacement in my left knee. Hopefully it will be long-lasting. I know most patients hate to do surgery again and do therapy over again. I will let you know later. Other doctor told that one year each. Others don't. Vary! Mine - hope long-lasting.

I had the Oxford replacement a year ago and it has been an absolute nightmare. I'm very active and my surgeon told me I'd be back playing tennis in four months. Well here I am a year later and I have to go see him again tomorrow because it has swollen to the parallel state of 2 weeks post operative. Not much pain but continued swelling and with three opinions no one can seem to determine what has gone wrong. I know this may be an isolated case but I would not recommend this to anyone.
