Colorado Orthopedic Consultant Performs e-plus™ Total Knee Replacement
Date:4/3/2013

Aurora, CO (PRWEB) April 03, 2013

Dr. Stewart K. Weinerman, Aurora and an Englewood orthopedic surgeon from Colorado Orthopedic Consultants, is performing the e-plus™ 3DKnee™ procedure for individuals in need of total knee replacement. He is the first doctor in the Denver Metro to carry out this operation, having completed it at The Medical Center of Aurora.

In this kind of surgery, doctors connect one metal component to the thigh bone (femur) and another to the shin bone (tibia). To enable movement, they also fit a polyethylene component between these two so the femur can move successfully against the tibia. Because it is thermoplastic in nature, the polyethylene is subject to wear and tear through oxidation, which affects the durability of the knee replacement.

To prolong the effectiveness of the procedure, Dr. Weinerman uses the e-plus™ insert with the 3DKnee™ (Data Driven Design) system, which was crafted to help individuals enjoy increased strength, stability, and flexion. The insert is formulated with vitamin E, which, as a natural antioxidant, strengthens the polyethylene and reduces its susceptibility to wear. For full functionality, the vitamin E is combined with the resin before it undergoes compression molding.

With e-plus™ integrated with the 3DKnee™ system, total knee replacements are shown to experience 57% less wear in laboratory tests. This is an improvement over their long-term performance when implemented with the Direct Molded insert traditionally used with the system. To date over 30,000 successful 3DKnee procedures have been performed worldwide.

“I am very excited to offer my patients the highest level of technology accessible to take full advantage of the benefits provided by knee replacement surgery.” – Dr. Weinerman, Englewood and Aurora orthopedic surgeon
