A 35-year-old female asked:

Partial knee: You are very Yong for any sort of replacement. But partial knees feel the most like a normal knee. Function is excellent but you cannot do too much on it or you will wear it out very quickly.
A 33-year-old female asked:

Orthopedic Surgery 21 years experience
Hip pain: Could be a snapping hip syndrome. Either internal or external depending on what relieves the pressure. Could also be arthritis or osteonecrosis of the femoral head. And X-ray and physical exam will help. Occasionally an MRI is needed. Most often this is an easily tested condition.
