About ConforMIS Knee Replacement
ConforMIS implants, including the iTotal, iUni and iDuo, are FDA-approved. The femoral and tibial components are composed of a cobalt-chromium-molybdenum alloy, 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. These custom knees meet coverage requirements under the same insurance reimbursement codes as off-the-shelf implants.
Custom knee implants for both the femur and tibia are individual to your unique anatomy. Because they 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 fit of the implants should improve clinical results.
