What does the surgeon do in the OR during knee replacement surgery?

Surgeons are equipped with many tools during a Conformis knee replacement to ensure the best chance for a successful procedure. Before each case, the surgeon receives a pre-operative plan called an iView that is designed specifically for each case. This allows him or her to better understand that patient’s anatomy before starting the procedure.

Once the surgeon has reviewed the iView, they use a series of disposable 3D printed cutting blocks (called iJigs) designed for that patient’s anatomy to create the bone resections outlined in the preoperative plan. The surgeon then cements the custom-made femoral and tibial implants.
