Personalised knee implant
Personalised knee implants offer unique advantages comparatively to the more traditional knee replacement as no two patients have exactly the same knee anatomy.
Custom made knees
Each implant is created specifically for you and exactly mirrors the surface contours of your knee, providing bone preservation. The implants also provides an anatomic fit with less bone cutting than traditional treatments.
Patients with unicompartmental disease are able to preserve their knee for future treatments and may also experience faster recovery time and reduced post-operative pain than with traditional total knee replacement. In addition, the unique instrumentation can improve alignment and provide a more natural feel to the knee, which can reduce implant wear and extend the life of the knee joint.
