The objective of this study was to describe an accelerated protocol for early discharge of patients undergoing Oxford medial unicompartmental knee arthroplasty using a minimally invasive approach.
Oxford knee score, American Knee Society score (objective and functional) and the ability to perform functional tasks were recorded pre-operatively and 6 weeks and 1 year postoperatively in one hundred consecutive patients undergoing Oxford medial unicompartmental knee arthroplasty with an average age of 64 years. The authors conclude that outcome following minimally invasive Oxford medial unicompartmental knee replacement is not compromised with the use of an accelerated treatment protocol.
