​ConforMIS Knee

At Parkview Ortho Hospital, a new advancement in knee replacement technology is now available: ConforMIS iTotal® knee implants. It starts with a CT scan of your knee, then individual implants are designed, customized to your anatomy. This process allows the implants to be better sized and better aligned with your unique anatomy, which may result in a more natural-feeling knee replacement.

Using this unique and custom approach can help you return to a better quality of life more quickly – you may experience less pain and less swelling. This can contribute to a quicker rehab and recovery process.

How is it made?

ConforMIS iTotal knee implants are developed using imaging technology that creates a detailed 3-D “map” of your knee. This 3-D printing technology is then used to create a precise wax mold of the implant. Then, the mold is used to create the

metal components of the implant.

All of the surgical instruments needed for the procedure are also produced using 3-D printing and are calibrated for use with only you. They are used just once and are then discarded, eliminating the need for repeat sterilization when instruments are used with more than one patient.

A new advancement in joint replacement technology is now available for patients at the Parkview Ortho Hospital. The implants, known as ConforMIS iTotal® knee implants, are designed based on a CT scan of each patient’s knee. Because a custom knee implant can be better sized and better aligned with each patient’s unique anatomy, many patients report that the implants result in a more natural feeling knee replacement. Using this unique and custom approach helps patients return to a better quality of life more quickly, as most experience less pain and less swelling, contributing to a quicker rehab and recovery process.
