Custom made knee prosthesis

25 April 2020

When suffering from advanced knee osteoarthritis, knee replacement gives a chance to recover and return to normal functioning in everyday life. It is intended for any patient for whom other methods of treating osteoarthritis failed, there are contraindications for arthroscopy and they were referred for hip replacement surgery by a doctor. In our hospital, we perform such surgeries using personalized “tailor-made” prostheses. 3D technology and computed tomography allow for individualization of the prosthesis and its alteration to a particular patient. Knee replacement surgeries using custom made knee prosthesis are performed by Urszula Zdanowicz, MD, a specialist in orthopedics and traumatology.
