About knee osteoarthritis

Osteoarthritis is a condition that affects the joints; it usually develops in people over 50 years of age and is more common in women than men. It is also known as degenerative joint disease and can lead to a breakdown of the joint’s cartilage, which is the firm material that lines the joints and allows them to move without friction. As the cartilage in the joint wears away, the bone ends may begin to rub against each other, causing pain.

KineSpring® Knee Implant System

The KineSpring System is a joint preserving implant for suitable patients who might otherwise be considering a knee replacement. The KineSpring System offers an option between injection treatments and high tibial osteotomy treatment, and can provide pain relief with the preservation of the patients own knee and continuation of impact activities and heavy manual work, unlike partial or total joint replacement where such activities may lead to early failure of the replacement and the need for revision joint replacement.

The KineSpring System is a joint preserving implant

The KineSpring System is designed to treat osteoarthritic pain by absorbing excess load placed on the knee joint. By reducing the load supported by the diseased knee the KineSpring System is intended to protect cartilage while maintaining the joint’s natural motion and structural integrity. In this way the system also helps to treat loss of function from the knee.

Treatment options for knee osteoarthritis

Treatment for knee osteoarthritis is based on individual symptoms, activity level and other medical conditions. The goals of osteoarthritis treatment include minimising pain, restoring normal activity levels and slowing disease progression.

Some treatments such as a high tibial osteotomy, a unicompartmental knee arthroplasty or a total knee replacement can reduce the stress on your knee and relieve pain, but they may involve invasive surgery.

High tibial osteotomy is a surgical procedure to realign the leg and reduce the pain you have from your knee by transferring the body weight to the preserved normal outer side of the knee. Unicompartmental knee arthroplasty is a surgical procedure used to relieve arthritis limited to a single part compartments of the knee in which the damaged parts of the knee are replaced.

A total knee replacement is a surgical procedure to replace both sides of the knee joint to relieve pain and disability. In contrast the KineSpring Knee Implant System is designed to absorb excess knee loads whilst preserving your natural joint anatomy in a less invasive surgical procedure
