Signature™ guided knee replacement system

Mr. Trevor Lawrence, Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon offers his patients at Spire Parkway
 Hospital the latest knee replacement surgery using the innovative Signature™ personalised knee system (supplied by Biomet), that provides a knee custom fitted to you. The benefits of which, can lead to a reduction in the time patients are in theatre and thereby under anaesthetic. 

Caring for a wide range of complex conditions in a clean and modern environment

This is the latest technological advancement for planning and undertaking knee replacement surgery. Patients have an MRI scan of the knee, hips and ankle before the surgery. This allows computer aided measurement of leg alignment. From these images, a customized jig is manufactured that fits exactly onto the bone ends so that the thigh bone and shin bones are cut at the correct angle so that the knee joint is restored to its original alignment. Each patient has a unique shape to their knee and this system allows for individual variation. The advantages for the patient over traditional techniques can include:

  • Optimum alignment of the knee replacement implants for each individual patient which should improve the longevity and function of the knee replacement
  • Less invasive surgery with a more complete recovery
  • A smaller incision is usually made 
  • A shorter operation and shorter hospital stay.
