Knees vary in size and shape. Even your own two knees are different. In a traditional knee replacement, however, the surgeon selects an “off-the-shelf” implant from 6 – 10 standard sizes and makes the necessary adjustments to fit the implant during the procedure.
Because off-the-shelf implants aren’t designed to your specific anatomy, surgeons often have to compromise on the fit, rotation, and alignment of an implant.
To provide patients with better results, ConforMIS has developed the only customized total knee replacement that is designed specifically for your knee.
This patient-specific approach offers unique advantages not possible with traditional, off-the-shelf implants:
- Individualized fit that virtually eliminates the sizing compromises common with off-the-shelf implants that are often associated with pain after surgery
- Designed to follow the shape and contour of each patient’s knee, which provides an increased potential for a more natural feeling knee
- Maintains the patients natural joint to avoid instability, a common cause of patient dissatisfaction
