Are you considering total knee replacement?
If so, you should check out the new ConforMIS knee implant that is customized to the size and shape of your knee.
Dr. Vincent Santoro of EvergreenHealth Orthopedic & Sports Care is the only surgeon currently offering the ConforMIS implant in Washington state, and patients rave about the results.
It’s the first knee implant custom designed to fit your knee.
Knees vary in size and shape. Even your own two knees are different.
Because the off-the-shelf implants used in traditional knee replacement aren’t designed to your specific anatomy, surgeons often have to compromise on implant fit, rotation and alignment. These compromises can cause pain or discomfort after surgery.
But the ConforMIS knee is built to fit the specific anatomy of your knee.
ConforMIS iFit® image-to-implant® technology converts a CT scan of your knee into a 3D model and then designs an implant that’s unique to you. This fully automated process ensures that your implant is made for your knee, and only your knee.
This offers several advantages that aren’t possible with an off-the-shelf knee implant, including:
By restoring the natural shape of your knee rather than replacing it with the standardized geometry of off-the-shelf implants, your knee may feel more like your natural knee.
These resources will provide more information about the benefits of the customized ConforMIS knee implant.
