A high performance knee replacement is central to regaining an active life for patients suffering from knee pain. But not all knee surgeries are created alike. Midwest Sports Medicine uses a new, technologically advanced surgical procedure that may extend the life of knee implants.
VISIONAIRE Patient Match technology is a remarkable system that uses a patient's specific x-ray and MRI images to custom-craft and build surgical instruments customized for her or his unique knee anatomy.
While every person's knee joint has subtle differences in shape and contour, traditional surgical instruments used to place knee implants are one-size-fits-all. Although traditional knee replacement has a high success rate, we no longer spend time during a knee procedure adapting to a knee's "terrain" in order to achieve the proper placement of the implant.
Using VISIONAIRE technology, Midwest Sports Medicine comes to the operating room equipped with single-use instruments, engineered exclusively for our patient's knee.
Not only does the VISIONAIRE system eliminate multiple steps from the surgery, reducing time under anesthesia, but an implant placed with this computer-guided precision has a reduced risk of the kind of misalignment that can cause it to wear out before its time.
