The Perfect Fit Knee: Personalized Knee Replacement Implants Are Here
Date:5/31/2013

Clearwater, FL (PRWEB) May 31, 2013

‘The Perfect Fit Knee’ implant has arrived! Expert surgeons at The Florida Knee and Orthopedic Centers (FKOC) have started using revolutionary new knee implants that are custom designed to fit each individual patient perfectly. These are the only personalized knee implants designed to conform precisely to each patient’s unique anatomy. This results in a specially made implant that follows the shape and contour of that specific patient’s knee to provide increased potential for a more natural feel. Think of it this way: Wouldn't a tailor-made suit fit better than trying to match the size of a suit off of the rack?

These ‘perfect fit’ knee implants were developed by ConforMIS for patients with arthritic knee damage and suffer from severe knee pain. If a patient is a candidate for the ‘perfect fit knee’, they will be prescribed a CT scan to be sent to ConforMIS for the development of their customized knee implant. The data from the CT scan is converted into a 3D model of the patient’s knee joint. The implant is then created to conform to the one of a kind 3D structure of the patient’s knee joint. Standard knee implants are available in a limited range of shapes and sizes, whereas customized implants come ready to fit perfectly to the patient’s existing knee joint.

The custom knee replacement provides an anatomic fit with less bone cutting than traditional procedures. This allows the patient to preserve more of their healthy knee bone and cartilage for future treatment options as well as a faster recovery time with less post-operative pain. This knee replacement is a minimally-invasive procedure in which the surgeon will use personalized instruments that have been custom designed for each patient’s knee implant and only used on that individual patient. These customized surgical instruments further simplify the surgery because all adjustments for that patient’s particular size and shape have been included prior to surgery.

The experienced orthopedic surgeons at FKOC are proud to offer these ‘perfect fit’ knees to their patients as an alternative to traditional implants that are typically only a close match. “Patients are extremely happy to hear that their knee implant is going to be personalized specifically to fit them and them alone. Wouldn’t you rather a tailor-made suit rather than one off the rack? We feel the same about your knees,” stated a representative from FKOC. This has truly changed the way orthopedic surgeons view knee replacements and knee replacement implants as a whole.

Patients and surgeons all over are getting very excited about the arrival of ‘The Perfect Fit Knee’. The orthopedic doctors at FKOC are now using this revolutionary technology to perform personalized knee replacements with customized knee implants that are patient specific. This also allows for the patient to retain more healthy bone and cartilage during the minimally-invasive knee replacement procedure. Developed by ConforMIS, a knee implant and surgical instruments are designed from the patient’s CT scan and created to conform to fit that patient perfectly.
