Shape drives stability

How does the shape of a knee affect it’s motion and stability? Drs. William Kurtz, Christopher Cannova, David Mack, Edward Rossario, and Deryk Jones discuss how Conformis addresses mid-flexion instability compared to off-the-shelf implants.

“I’m not seeing the mid-flexion instability that we’re seeing with off-the-shelf implants, and the main reason is with the off-the-shelf implants, you’re cutting off the end of the femur and you’re building up from that point, kind of recreating that patient’s joint line. With Conformis, you’re respecting that patient’s femoral offset and you’re maintaining a consistent arc of motion throughout the range of motion.” – Edward Rossario, MD
