KUSA – People have been getting knee replacement surgery for decades — and 600,000 people will have the surgery this year alone. Now, there is a new personalized knee implant which is made specifically for one person.
These types of personalized knee replacements are being described as a breakthrough in this otherwise common surgery. This new custom knee is called the Conformis knee implant. With it, surgeons use 3D technology and a CT scan to get the precise dimensions of someone’s specific knee. From these dimensions, a patient-specific implant will be prepared and made available prior to the patient’s surgery.
Implants are designed from a CT-Scan to match your size and shape for optimal fit.
