Why a Personalized Knee?
The goal of any knee replacement is to be pain-free, restore natural motion, and for patients to return faster to their everyday activities. That’s why at Conformis we believe that when it comes to fit, close isn't good enough, each patient deserves his customized implant.
A personal approach for your unique knee:
- The unicity of your knee makes it essential to mimic its natural joint lines. Our customized knee replacement offers unique advantages not possible with off-the-shelf implants. The off-the-shelves implants come in standard sizes with common shapes matching the existing average knee anatomies while Conformis reproduces accurately your specific knee and the neutral mechanical alignment of your body (called HPA alignment, standing for Hip, Knee, Ankle).
- Because off-the-shelf implants aren’t designed to your specific anatomy, surgeons often have to compromise on implant fit, rotation, and alignment. These compromises can cause pain or discomfort after surgery and help explain why 1 in 5 patients aren’t satisfied with their standard implant. We don’t believe in forcing your body to match the implant, but rather creating an implant matching your knee.
Over the years, we have developed a full range of knee protheses that will match your unique anatomy, providing a more natural feeling, better fit, better shape, and easy motion, leading to less pain, better flexion and extension as well as stability.
