iUni Partial Knee Replacement
iDuo Partial Knee Replacement
Doctors Hospital is the first in the area to provide conforMIS iUni and iDuo patient customized partial knee replacement systems.
A partial knee procedure refers to a surgery designed to treat just one or two compartments in a knee, a possibility when osteoarthritis is not present in all three components, and a great option for the younger, more active patient.
This implant is designed through Conformist’s iFit technology to optimize fit and performance of the knee replacement. Each implant is made specifically for each patient. Using 3D CT scan images, a patient’s own knee anatomy provides the template to create the customized knee implant. The implants are also combined with a resurfacing procedure that preserves more of the healthy bone and tissue and provide the opportunity for a smaller incision and shorter recovery time.
Benefits of a personalized implant for one to two compartments of the knee include:
- Matching the individual’s shape and anatomy
- More natural alignment
- Better bone preservation
- Less trauma than full total knee replacement
- Potentially reduced recovery time
