Partial Knee Replacement
How It Works: Custom Fit Knee Replacement
Custom Fit Knee Replacement with OtisKnee is done in a few simple steps.
Step 1: An MRI is performed to take very precise measurements of the patient's own knee.
Step 2: Special computer software uses the MRI to build a 3-D model of that patient's arthritic knee. It then virtually corrects the deformity to restore the knee anatomy to normal.
Step 3: A computerized 3-D image of the implant to be used in the patient's surgery is then ShapeMatched to the anatomically correct model. This helps determine the exact size and placement of the implant, based on the patient's own "normal" anatomy.
Step 4: Using all of this information, special OtisKnee cutting guides are then created for the surgeon to use during the procedure.
The Result: A custom fit knee replacement designed specifically for the individual patient.
