Conventional knee replacement surgery uses ready-made implants. The disadvantage of this is that surgeons have to compromise on the precise fit and sizing of the implant, choosing the one that most closely matches your bone structure. If an implant does not fit perfectly, it can lead to long-term pain and restricted mobility. One in five people who receive an off the shelf implant are not fully satisfied with the results of surgery.
Customised (iTotal Conformis) knee implants are individually designed for your knee, providing a perfect, customised fit that mimics the natural shape of your knee

Why are custom implants better than normal implants?
They are individually designed for you based on your personal anatomy. Because they are custom fitted to you, the surgeon doesn’t have to compromise on fit. This means there is less likelihood of pain after surgery. More of your healthy bone and ligament can be preserved which means you have more treatment options in the future. Custom implants are designed to mimic the natural shape of your knee for improved movement and function.
How long will it be before I can get back to normal?
Recovery varies from one person to another. On average most people return to their normal day to day activities within six weeks. More physical activities like sport can take up to three months.
How long does the operation take?
Total knee replacement is a standard procedure. It takes between 60 and 90 minutes.
