PATIENT SPECIFIC TOTAL KNEE REPLACEMENT
A new method of ‘Total knee Athroplasty’ is introduced to Evangelismos Hospital by the Orthopaedic Team of Dr Dimitris Aspros MD, FRCS, FEBOT and Dr Stathis Tourvas, FRCS.
It is well known that the implants used in knee replacements need to be correctly aligned within the body to reduce implant wear and improve the implant performance.
For this reason, our team has adopted a revolutionary method of computerized personalized Total Knee Replacement by Smith and Nephew - a system that uses your own MRI and X-Ray images to design and build surgical instruments customized specifically for your unique knee anatomy.
These streamlined instruments potentially offer several patient advantages:
- Less time in surgery - Because this Patient Matched Technology method removes multiple steps from the traditional knee replacement process your time under anaesthesia is reduced. This helps limit blood loss and lower concerns such as infection, heart failure or stroke.
- Less invasive procedure with a shorter scar, less bone removal, reduced post-surgical pain and a faster return to your normal life.
- A more precisely placed implant which will prevent premature or excessive wear of the implant and extend its lifespan.
