Benefits of Custom Fit Knee Replacement
With our custom fit knee replacement, surgeons can replace joints more accurately so you spend less time in surgery and recover more quickly.
Prior to surgery, you will undergo an MRI of your hip, knee and leg. Based on your MRI, computer software builds a 3-D model of the arthritic knee that allows the surgeon to plan carefully before surgery so it takes less time, presents a lowered risk of infection and gets you up sooner. Most people have the operation in the morning and are walking on the new joint that afternoon.
Three Beaufort Memorial Hospital orthopedic surgeons—Drs. Edward Blocker, Kevin Jones and Leland Stoddard—are among the first in South Carolina and Georgia to offer this latest generation in computer navigation to achieve custom fit knee replacement.
