Patient-Specific Personalized Partial Knee Replacement
Arthritic knees require customized reconstruction of the bone AND the soft tissues. This is true for both partial and full knee replacements. The deformed joint must be rebuilt, rebalanced and stabilized without impairing normal motion and function. Customization is performed by the surgeon throughout the surgical procedure. Successful surgery is an art founded on proven science.
Partial knee replacement is only helpful for the minority of patients whose arthritis is localized to a small area of the knee surface. The rest of the knee has to be undamaged or the likelihood of early failure is high. It is not helpful in patients with inflammatory arthritis such as rheumatoid arthritis. The option of partial replacement, its risks and benefits needs to be discussed with your surgeon.
We offer total knee systems that are best suited to each arthritic knee. The CONFORMIS and ATTUNE systems help to optimize the surgical outcome. Our focus is on giving patients a knee replacement that lasts 25 to 30 years with no pain and no limitations.
