Did You Know? Arthritis of the knee may occur in any one of the three compartments that make up the knee joint. The inner (medial) compartment of the knee and the outer (lateral) compartment of the knee are formed by the articulation (or joining) of the lowest part of the thighbone (femur) and the highest part of the shinbone (tibia). The third compartment of the knee is formed by the kneecap (patella) and the front part of the femur. This is referred to as the patellofemoral joint. The medial compartment is the most frequent site of osteoarthritis of the knee. Learn more at http://www.hss.edu/conditions_partial-knee-replacement.asp.
