Signature Knee Replacement : An Approach to Personalized Knee Surgery
|Submitted on: Mon, 26 Dec 2011 00:09:51||Views: 357|
The advancement in technology has paved the way to the latest advancements in knee replacement surgery. Many professional orthopaedic surgeons offer the new signature knee procedure, giving patients a personalised knee implant which may offer a number of advantages over the traditional techniques.
Many people experience pain and stiffness in the knee joint due to arthritis of the knee joint. Patients often suffer unnecessarily for many years when knee replacement surgery could provide them with an option to eliminate pain and increase mobility. New scientific advancements have brought improvements in surgical techniques, implant design and preoperative planning that helps to maximise function, pain relief and patient satisfaction.
A traditional knee replacement surgery is performed on the basis of a two dimensional X-ray as a guide for the surgeon to remove the arthritic bone and fit the new knee implant. With the new signature knee technique, the surgeon uses a 3D MRI to help plan the operation. The scan is used to generate an exact bone replica of the patientâ??s knee. The signature knee is created to provide an accurate replica for the knee replacement implant. This results in personalized knee replacement. Each patient has a unique shape of their knee and this system allows for individual creation.
The signature knee replacement procedure is less invasive than traditional techniques, usually requiring a shorter operating time, and reduced hospital stay for the patient. With a more carefully personalized and fitted implant, the potential benefits include less pain and longer durability.
If you have any questions regarding signature knee surgery, speak to your orthopaedic surgeon. Only an orthopaedic surgeon can determine what treatment is appropriate for you as per the severity of your knee condition.
