Burlington, Mass. — January 6, 2011 — On December 14th at 7:00pm EDT, OR-Live broadcasted a panel discussion on the Conformis iDuo® G2, the next generation of its bicompartmental knee resurfacing system. You have the opportunity to learn more about the technology from pioneers in the field through a YouTube video of the panel.
The iDuo G2 provides a less invasive alternative to total knee replacement for patients suffering from disease in the medial (inner) or lateral (outer) compartment of the knee, along with the patellofemoral joint (the area behind the kneecap). By targeting just the diseased portions of the joint, the iDuo G2 enables appropriately selected patients to preserve all of their ligaments and far more bone than a traditional total knee replacement.
