Customized Knee Implants
Customized Knee Replacement Implants
In traditional knee replacement surgery, the surgeon selects an “off-the-shelf” implant from a range of standard fixed sizes, and then has to make the necessary adjustments to fit the implant to the patient during the procedure.
Because off-the-shelf knee replacements aren’t designed to your specific anatomy, surgeons have to compromise on implant fit. This compromise may result in having implant overhang (implant hangs over the bone) or under hang (the implant is too small, leaving the bone exposed and uncovered). It could also result in an implant that isn’t aligned properly.
Clinical studies have demonstrated that these compromises on fit can cause residual pain after surgery. At ConforMIS we design partial and total knee implants to fit the patient, not the other way around. We combine proven elements of standard knee replacement with our iFit Image-to-Implant® technology to create customized knee implants and surgical instrumentation that are designed to fit your knee’s natural shape and curves.
With this patient-specific approach the ConforMIS knee replacement systems offer unique advantages we believe are not possible with traditional, off-the-shelf implants
