iTotal Customized Knee Replacement
While some people can get away with a partial knee replacement, many must get a total knee replacement. The technical term for knee replacement is arthroplasty. This surgical procedure involves resurfacing a knee and reconstructing the features of a natural joint with an artificial one. Dr. Driessnack chooses to work with custom solutions rather than off-the-shelf products that can’t guarantee a perfect fit. Specifically, he uses ConforMIS, a custom knee implant for both the femur and tibia, which is individually sized and shaped to fit your unique anatomy. Choose us for iTotal customized knee replacement.
iTotal® implants, designed to mimic the natural shape of your knee, allows for a better range of motion. Additionally, you can feel and move more naturally. These femoral and tibial implants, approved by the FDA, provide a customized fit specific to your knee. In turn, this helps reduce sizing compromises that can result in long-term pain after surgery.
Benefits of iTotal
There are several benefits to the iTotal system, including:
- Customized fit to your knee
- Mimics the natural shape of your knee
- Less traumatic procedure
- Finally, improves operating room efficiencies
Total knee replacement is becoming more and more common, with 90 percent of patients who undergo knee replacement experiencing less pain and greater mobility afterwards. The type of knee implant you get is a critical factor in success. That’s why you should call Dr. Richard Driessnack for customized knee replacement. He has performed extensive research into the best knee implants available today, settling on one in particular: ConforMIS, approved by the FDA and crafted from cobalt-chromium-molybdenum alloy. This is 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.
Osteoarthritis of the knee is the #1 reason people opt for knee replacement. While other doctors may work with off-the-shelf products, we only use custom knee implants so as to reduce the chances for failure or compromise.
