For patients diagnosed with osteoarthritis, a total or partial knee replacement surgery may be necessary to revive their quality of life. Traditional knee replacements are offered by most Orthopaedic Surgeons; however, the overhang left by Traditional Knee Replacements often causes the patient to experience long-term discomfort and ultimately, dissatisfaction.
To counteract this problem, ConforMIS created a line of completely personalized knee implants, unique to each individual’s knee. ConforMIS sums it up best in their philosophy statement, “Patients vary in more ways than gender, race, and size. At ConforMIS, we believe that optimizing implant fit and performance requires a patient-specific approach.” Dr. Levengood is both a specialist in performing procedures with ConforMIS and is a strong advocate for the added benefits it gives his patients long term.
