Breaking down the truth about custom knee replacements.
Dr. Lindsey answers your questions and talks about the difference between the ConforMIS Knee and traditional Knee Replacements.
Harvard trained orthopedic surgeon, Dr. Joshua Lindsey explains the difference between traditional knee replacements and custom knees. He answers the most asked questions about knee replacement surgery like: “How long will it last?” and “What makes a custom knee truly custom?”
Not all surgeons offer options when it comes to knee replacements, and there are many reasons why. Dr. Lindsey addresses those reasons and talks about the risks and benefits of knee replacement surgery.
Traditional knee replacements use “off-the-shelf” implants with standard sizing for everyone. We’ve changed that old fashioned approach with the addition of ConforMIS custom knees. Using high resolution 3-dimensional MRI images of your knee, Dr. Lindsey can have custom implants with custom surgical tools built that work for you and you only. You’ll have a one-of-a-kind knee that works just for you and your unique anatomy.
“Knee replacements top the national list for how patients rate surgical procedures in reducing their pain. And that’s a real positive, since the number of patients requiring knee replacements is rising as the baby boomers age.” Says Dr. Lindsey
No two knees are alike and, at the Orthopedic Institute at Southwest Health, Dr. Lindsey and his staff do their very best to help you make the decisions that are right for your lifestyle so that you can get back to doing what you love faster and better than ever.
