Biomet releases surgical guide system for partial knee replacement
Biomet Orthopedics announced the launch of the Signature Personalized Patient Care System for use with the Oxford Partial Knee System. The system enables surgeons to preoperatively plan a knee replacement surgery and precisely place implants by using Signature custom positioning guides, according to a company press release.
Biomet’s Oxford Partial Knee System is designed to help surgeons preserve and restore normal knee function and movement by replacing only the medial, diseased compartment of the knee. During this process, surgeons use the Signature system to create custom femoral and tibial surgical positioning guides that help achieve optimal joint implant positioning.
“With Signature and the Oxford Partial Knee, surgeons now have state-of-the-art technology for patients undergoing partial knee replacement surgery,” Michael Berend, MD, from Center for Hip & Knee Surgery at St. Francis Health Hospital, stated in the release.
