A Personalized Solution to Knee Pain.
The ConforMIS approach combines a portfolio of products for osteoarthritis in one, two or all three compartments of the knee with a unique approach to resurfacing. Rather than joint replacement, the products use patient-specific data from imaging scans to create implants that resurface the joint. Combining partial or total knee options with a resurfacing approach affords maximum bone preservation.
Personalized implants offer unique advantages versus traditional knee replacement surgery, including:
• Superior fit matched to individual size and shape
• Natural, anatomic feel and alignment
• Significant bone preservation
• Less traumatic procedure and faster recovery
For many patients, especially those who suffer from knee problems in the earlier stages of osteoarthritis, ConforMIS offers a range of implants that may provide a less invasive, less traumatic option than traditional knee replacement.
Custom-Designed Total Knee Replacement:
For patients who suffer from osteoarthritis, total knee replacement sometimes becomes necessary. Dr. Scott Bigelow is the first orthopaedic surgeon in Lincoln and surrounding areas to offer the ConforMIS iTotal CR®, a knee implant that is custom-designed for each individual patient, meaning less pain and better results.
The iTotal implant is used to treat patients with damage to all three compartments of the knee. It is customized for each individual patient, leading to a fit that feels more like your natural knee. The personalized implant also means less pain and patient dissatisfaction after surgery.
One possible source of patient dissatisfaction with total knee replacement surgery is residual pain from overhang. The iTotal knee replacement procedure offered by Dr. Bigelow uses a customized implant for every patient, which eliminates overhang.
