Abstract: The osteoarthritis of knee is a wide spread condition worldwide and specially in country like India where the routine life is such where knee joint arthritis occurs at an early age. The widely used treatment option for knee arthritis is total knee replacement which have its own complication and once the complication like infection sets in we are left with nothing but to do arthrodesis or revision knee after controlling infection which cause a lot of problem for the patient as well as doctors. And moreover if total knee replacement done at an early age predisposes the patient to revision surgery as the life of the joint used is not more than life expectancy of the patient this puts a surgical toll over patient as well as financial load. Here we have compared our technique of treating osteoarthritis wherein we are preserving the natural joint and no implant are used in our technique which in itself reduced the major complications and even if by any chance complication occurs we are left with many options to give functional knee to the patient rather than going for arthrodesis which is not very well accepted by many patients. In this article we have compared pros and cons of our technique with total knee replacement.
