Patient shapes differ on the inside as well as on the outside, so with this in mind Spire Cheshire Hospital is pleased to add personalised knee replacements to its range of treatments.
Personalised total knee replacement helps to provide more of a custom fit knee
At Spire Cheshire Hospital we offer the Signature™ personalised knee replacement performed by Mr Nikhil Pradhan.
The Zimmer PSI knee replacement is performed by:
Mr Mike McNicholas
Mr Paul Sherry
Mr Rajiv Sanger
Spire Cheshire Hospital is proud to announce that Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeons Mr Nikhil Pradhan and Mr Paul Sherry have performed the most patient specific knee replacements in the United Kingdom.
How it works
Personalised total knee replacement helps to provide more of a custom fit knee, specifically for you, regardless of age, race, size or gender.
The personalised total knee replacements use MRI and computer technology to create a mould of your knee prior to surgery to help accurately size and align the replacement knee in accordance with your knee geometry. This enables the surgeon to create a detailed pre-operative surgery plan, tailored to your specific requirements. Personalised positioning guides are also created to help the surgeon place the new knee joint during the operation.
A better aligned total knee replacement will potentially have better long term results and the less invasive procedure may help to reduce pain and recovery time.
