Conformis Patient Advocates: Knee Replacement Testimonials and Stories

Conformis Patient Advocates are real patients who are living with a Conformis knee replacement. Hear about their experiences throughout recovery from knee surgery.

Knee Replacement Experiences from Real Patients

Our Patient Advocates were invited to our world headquarters to see for themselves how their custom-made knee was designed & manufactured. Featured here, each advocate is holding an exact replica of their own implant that was presented to them at the factory. Click through to hear their knee replacement stories.
