Dr. Driessnack is a specialist in knee and hip replacement, attending national hip and knee meetings each year. He has participated in a multi-center national clinical study comparing two types of knee prosthesis designs, presenting those findings at an international meeting.
The FDA has approved ConforMIS implants, including the iTotal, iUni and iDuo, for use. These implants are composed of cobalt-chromium-molybdenum alloy, a metal commonly used in orthopedic implants. The tibial and patellar inserts are constructed of ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) or vitamin-e infused UHMWPE. Your doctor can go over the specifics for the type of implant best for you. The same insurance reimbursement codes cover these custom knees as off-the-shelf implants.
Consequently, custom knee implants for both the femur and tibia fit your unique anatomy. Because they are designed to fit the knee’s natural shape and curves at the point of manufacture, these implants fit the individual perfectly with no chance for compromises such as overhang and underhang. Optimizing the size, shape, and overall fit should improve clinical results.
