Why Unique is Better
Unique knee implants are custom made to fit the knee’s natural shape and curves at the point of manufacture. In addition, the patient enjoys an individualized fit as part of a system designed for optimal bone preservation. Custom knee implants for both the femur and tibia fit the individual’s anatomy.
Unique implant systems are advantageous over the standard “off-the-shelf” knee implants because they are custom made to fit the patient. Most surgeons use cookie-cutter implants in a range of standard fixed sizes. During surgery, the doctor then has to make necessary adjustments to ensure the implant fits the patient. When failing to match implants to the patient’s specific anatomy, compromises on fit can cause problems later on. And, we avoid that with unique solutions.
