Cohlmia Marketing Published on Oct 25, 2018 – Patient education video on the hospital’s new Robotic-Arm Assisted Technology for partial knee replacements.
Knee replacement surgery advances are improving patients’ experiences and outcomes. Knee surgery — or even partial knee replacement — is often the solution for advanced knee arthritis. Today you can regain significant mobility and flexibility after knee replacement thanks to advances in orthopedic surgery technology, materials and techniques. Knee replacement recovery times also have improved. This knee replacement surgery video covers what you can expect out of these knee joint replacement advances.
In this knee replacement video, a group of knee surgeons (Drs. Bernardo Ferrari, Jeffrey Kliman, John Parker, James Page and Rodney Wong) answer common questions about knee replacement operations and discuss some of the newest advances in the field.
Knee replacement surgery has been around for more than 30 years and is an incredibly successful operation. In the past the past, when a person had bad arthritis of the knee, they were pretty much out of luck other than taking aspirin.… Read the rest
Quebec City—September 14, 2017 – Bodycad has announced that the first personalized restoration procedures using its Unicompartmental Knee System in patients have been successfully performed.
Bodycad’s revolutionary system is designed to optimize personalized restoration of the patient’s unique anatomical features and kinematics. The system is based on proprietary 3D rendering of medical images of the patient’s anatomy, resulting in a better fit and the potential for improved clinical results and patient satisfaction.
“The personalized restoration enabled me to perform the procedure in an exact manner with minimal bone resection,” said Dr. Brian Hamlin, Co-Director of the Bone and Joint Center of Magee-Womens Hospital of University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, one of two orthopaedic surgeons to perform the procedure. “The reconstruction resulted in a well balanced knee with optimized tracking while avoiding overcorrection.”
Bodycad uses proprietary imaging algorithms to produce a precise 3D image of the patient’s knee. Its suite of Personalized Restoration Software enables a seamless integration of the image to implant process called the PREP (personalized restoration evaluation process).… Read the rest

Partial knee replacements are economically superior to total knee replacements in older adults, and with a few small improvements, can be an attractive option for younger patients as well, new research from Weill Cornell Medical College and Hospital for Special Surgery investigators suggests.
Knee replacement surgeries are expected to surpass one million annually by 2020, with half of these surgeries being performed on patients younger than 65. Historically, physicians have recommended total knee replacements for all adult patients including those who have end-stage osteoarthritis in part of the knee joint. But in their study, published March 4 in the Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery, the Weill Cornell investigators found that partial knee — also known as unicompartmental — replacements provide greater economic value to patients over the age of 65 compared to total knee replacement, as they are less likely to face surgical complications and require less physical therapy than those who undergo total knee replacement surgery…
…”With a unicompartmental knee replacement, you’re more likely to return to work earlier and have better function compared to total knee replacement, which requires more rehabilitation and has more complications,” said lead author Dr.… Read the rest
