How It Works: Custom Fit Knee® Replacement at Bacon County Hospital and Health System.
Custom Fit Knee replacement with OtisKnee® is done in a few simple steps.
Step 1: An MRI is performed to take very precise measurements of the patient's own knee.
Step 2: Special computer software uses the MRI to build a 3-D model of that patient's arthritic knee. It then virtually corrects the deformity to restore the knee anatomy to normal.
Step 3: A computerized 3-D image of the implant to be used in the patient's surgery is then Shape-Matched ® to the anatomically correct model. This helps determine the exact size and placement of the implant, based on the patient's own "normal" anatomy.
Step 4: Using all of this information, special OtisKnee cutting guides are then created for the surgeon to use during the procedure.
The Result: A custom fit knee replacement designed specifically for the individual patient.
