Minimally-invasive, computer/mri-assisted total knee arthroplasty:

• Appropriate for end-stage arthritic knees where all three compartments are worn and the ligaments are contracted (tethered).
• Performed through a small incision without detaching muscles
      • Quadriceps sparing approach
• Precision gained by utilizing
      • Computer navigation or patient-specific MRI-based alignment guides
      • Custom ligament balancing with computer tensioning device
• Implants designed just for women

            • shape of the thigh bone
            • direction the knee-cap (patella) tracks

            • Better tracking knee-cap
            • Less stress on soft-tissues around knee cap
• High-flexion implants
      • For those patients whose soft-tissues allow
            • Permits deep-bending, high-flexion activities
                  • Kneeling, gardening, praying, golfing
• Accelerated rehabilitation
      • Minimally-invasive surgery with computer/mri assistance reduces the injury to the surrounding
