Fargo surgeons Jeffrey Stavenger, Andrew Hvidston, and Mark Askew with Orthopaedics Associates, and Steve Lantz with Dakota Clinic attended an advanced training course for the Oxford Unicompartmental Knee System last week.

The Oxford is the onlyFDA-approved Free Floating Meniscal Unicompartmental knee system available in the United States.

Unlike total knee replacement involving removal of all the knee joint surfaces, a unicompartmental knee replacement replaces only one side of the knee joint. This allows the joint to bend better and to function more naturally.
