Why a Custom Fit?
You may wonder why customization is so important when it comes to knee replacement. Well, it’s important to get the exact right fit without having to rely on an off the shelf product that could present challenges during surgery. Dr. Driessnack uses custom knee implants for both the femur and tibia that are fit your unique anatomy. In fact, he uses the ConforMIS system that takes a 3D image of your knee so that the prosthetic knee replacement can mimic the exact specifications of your anatomy.
There are many advantages of a personalized system over the standard “off-the-shelf” knee implants. Yes, many surgeons choose from a range of standard fixed sizes. But, during surgery, they often have to make necessary adjustments to ensure the implant fits the patient. Resulting compromises may include implant overhang or underhang, mismatch between the femur and tibia, and a nagging problem surgeons term “mid-flexion instability.” Custom fit knee replacement can remedy all that.
