Arizona’s leading orthopedic surgeons at OrthoArizona – Arizona Orthopaedic Associates are now performing the Signature Knee replacement as an alternative to traditional knee replacement procedures.
Signature Knee replacement proposes a more accurate procedure, resulting in quicker recoveries and safer, more effective ways to treat patients with knee problems.
The Signature Knee replacement provides OrthoArizona – Arizona Orthopaedic Associates surgeons access to a higher level of detailed information for positioning the knee implant, thus allowing for proper alignment before the procedure begins. This process ensures a more accurate fit and reduces premature wear.
“The Signature Knee replacement is more exact, a more custom-fit product for those who need knee-replacements,” said Dr. William Salyer of OrthoArizona – Arizona Orthopaedic Associates. “Anyone can have the procedure done and probably everyone can benefit from it.”
The Signature Knee replacement is an innovative procedure that acts as a more precise knee replacement option, compared to traditional procedures.
Surgeons are provided with a custom cutting guide developed specifically for each patient’s own anatomy. Surgeons are able to see where the most beneficial cuts should take place, making way for the most ideal fit for the new knee replacement. This level of precision results in full mobility and maneuverability for patients after surgery without early wear of the replacement.
“With a Signature Knee cutting guide, I can look at preoperative images of what is going to happen before I make any cuts,” Dr. Salyer said. “I can look at the image and tell exactly what is going to happen. Then, when I make that first cut, everything else falls into place.”
