New Knee Replacement Technology
Improvements in orthopedic surgeries includes a customizable, new knee replacement surgery at NWH.
The past decade has brought many improvements in orthopedic surgeries, and Northern Westchester Hospital is keeping pace with leading-edge technology for customizing total knee replacements. The new, advanced surgery is less invasive than traditional knee replacement surgery, meaning less blood loss, quicker recovery time, and better implant fit and knee alignment for patients.
The next generation of computerized technology that helps customize total knee replacements for patients employs custom-designed cutting blocks during surgery.
The blocks are made of medical-grade nylon and precisely align to the mechanical axis of a patient’s knee, serving as a cutting guide during surgery.
Pre-op preparation Is critical.
