YOUR KNEE REQUIRES
A UNIQUE ROAD MAP
When it comes to knee surgery and knee replacement, accurate placement, and alignment of the implant components are critical to the overall longevity and function of the implant. Traditionally, surgeons have used pre-operative X-rays, instrumentation and special techniques to plan the surgery and calculate the fit and positioning of the total knee implant. While this has worked well for many years, studies have shown the risk of implant failure increases substantially when the implant is outside of three degrees of alignment.
ExactechGPS was developed to assist surgeons to meet their goals of precision and accuracy in total joint replacements. It has been shown to be accurate within less than one degree.
