CUSTOM FIT KNEE REPLACEMENT PATIENT SPECIFIC KNEE REPLACEMENT
Signature tech visionaire Technique:
As no two knees are similar, the patient's knee is first assessed with an MRI and images are sent to the US (Memphis) where a 3d model prepared matches exactly to the actual knee of the patient. Then the cutting jigs/blocks are prepared so that the best cuts can be made on the model. These jigs are then marked for that patient and sent to the surgeon. The jigs bear the name of the patient. It cannot be used on any other patient, and can't be reused. The surgeon conducts the operation to perfection with lesser time, smaller incision lesser soft tissue dissection and perfect alignment. Faster recovery is ensured. The need of navigation is now disappearing after the introduction of this technique. Dr. Harprit says, “I personally feel that such a surgery has revolutionized orthopaedics”. All our patients are satisfied and happily leading their lives.
