Custom Knee Replacement
Custom knee replacement is a process where the instruments used to perform a partial or total knee replacement are manufactured to fit every individual’s anatomy. The actual implants are the same as those currently used.
The principle behind this procedure is to replace the cartilage that has been worn away. Therefore, the mechanics of the knee may be more natural-feeling.
You should have a discussion with us about the pros and cons of this type of knee replacement.
Currently, there is no data to suggest that this type of procedure is better than more traditional knee replacements or that it will last longer. Research on this topic is ongoing.
