Technological Advantage

  1. Minimal Invasive Knee Surgery -With the help of MIS, the surgeon just need the incision of four to five inches only to perform the surgery. So the small incision means small scar which means less blood loss, less surgical trauma, less pain, less medication, fast recovery, hence shorter hospital stay.

  1. Attune Rotating Platform Knee Replacement – Attune rotating platform knee replacement along with minimally invasive technique is a boon alleviating all the fear in the patient. This surgical procedure makes the patients feel their knee is a normal knee in regards to stability, mobility & function. Versatility in size and matching the patient’s anatomy makes this technique very effective.

  1. Pain Management Technique – This technique involves femoral nerve block and regional (spinal) anesthesia which speeds up recovery. A femoral nerve block can be placed at the patient’s discretion in the preoperative area which greatly reduces the immediate pain upon waking up, yet allows early ambulation.
  2. Implants – Use of high strength & low weight implants are more “bone-friendly” as the elastic modulus of titanium is closer to bone compared to older less flexible metals & high flexion implants ensure that the patients will receive full flexion like the healthy knee joints use to have, which also eliminate the chance of metal hypersensitivity.

  1. Improved Bearings – Much improved bearing surfaces such as cross-linked polyethylene have been shown to last many more years before wearing down, and may never wear out in some patients.
  2. Patient-Specific Instrumentation – PSI helps in improving the alignment and sizing by using computer-generated images of the patient’s anatomy to calculate precise bone cuts and implant positioning during the surgery.
  3. BCS Knee Replacement Implant – The 2 important feature of this implant which makes it effective, are firstly it has a distinct design which allows the near-natural movement of the knee and secondly it is made of a material combination which has been shown to be durable in laboratory testing.
  4. Gender Specific Knee Replacement (Females) – Zimmer Implant; well this implant is made specially to suit the female body due to significant differences in the anatomy of men and women.
