  • Custom Knee Replacement - This innovative technology provides patients with a personalized surgical experience, facilitating an optimal implant fit and better outcomes. Differences in bone shape affect the way a knee replacement fits. Studies show that misalignment causes increased wear of the implant and can lead to premature failure. Customized knee replacement surgery utilizes MRI technology and pre-operative planning tools to create surgical guides that are tailored to each patient’s unique anatomy, allowing surgeons to better place and align the new knee. Surgeons can adjust and improve computer generated images of the patient’s knee to create the ideal customized surgery. In addition, surgeons use individually-tailored knee replacements that are designed to better match an individual's anatomy.
