Spire Tunbridge Wells Hospital is now offering patients the latest in personalised knee replacement using the new Signature™ procedure.
Knee replacement is a major operation and since we all come in different shapes and sizes, the Signature™ procedure has been developed to ensure that you get a knee that perfectly fits your individual anatomy.
The benefits of personalised knee replacement is that the knee is custom made for you thereby:
- Reducing the time you are in theatre and under anaesthetic.
- Reduce the post operative discomfort allowing a speedier recovery.
- The increased accuracy of implant positioning should also increase the lifespan of the knee replacement.
A key differentiator to normal knee replacement is that the pre-operative care with the Signature™ knee system will include an MRI. It allows a three dimensional picture of your anatomy enabling the surgeon to accurately plan your knee replacement and allow for your individual variations.
