    Question partial knee replacement

    I have osteoarthritis in my right knee. I had hyalgan injections (had 2 sets of three injections over the last year) that did not help. I had a meniscus tear repaired and the arthritis "cleaned" out in March of 2001. I take 200mg of Celebrex twice a day. I tried Vioxx, Bextra and Mobic. My dr says I am not a candidate for a total knee replacement because of my age (47). He said when things get so bad I cannot tolerate it anymore, I can consider a partial knee replacement. Has anyone had a partial knee replacement? Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
