Is oxford knee a good option for knee replacement?

I ve had one knee replacement surgery and, although it went very well and I have very little discomfort, the kneecap is uncomfortable. I may need the other knee replaced as well and am wondering about the option of the Oxford knee since it is a partial knee. Do you know about that?

Dear Sir, The Oxford knee, has very specific indications and it canonly be used if one compartment of your knee is affected. since you already have one joint replaced, the other joint will also probably need total joint replacement.
