ConforMIS

ConforMIS at Clifton Park Hospital

What is conforMIS?

This is a unique type of knee implant which differs entirely from the selection offered for traditional knee replacements.

The knee joint is a hinge joint and is the largest in the body - it allows flexion, extension and rotation to take place. It is made up of 3 essential bones – the femur, tibia and patella (kneecap). These bones form 3 core sections. There is cartilage present at the end of the bones to permit sliding where the bones meet, which also acts as a shock absorber.

The nature of the knee makes it increasingly susceptible to injury and osteoarthritis. Osteoarthritis is a degenerative condition in which the cartilage breaks down. It causes the end of bones to rub together and wear away, whichcauses pain and may limit your ability to partake in day-to-day tasks. If you suffer from osteoarthritis you may consider a total or partial knee replacement in order to relieve your discomfort.
