At AAOS 2012: Biomet Debuts Personalized Approach for Partial Knee Replacements
At AAOS in San Francisco, Biomet Orthopedics launched its Signature personalized patient care system designed for use with its Oxford partial knee system. The Signature custom positioning guides enable orthopedic surgeons to create custom femoral and tibial surgical positioning guides to facilitate precise joint implant positioning.
The Oxford partial knee procedure is designed to enable roughly 75% less bone and cartilage to be removed than total knee replacements. The patient-specific positioning guides are created using MRI data.
