Knee replacement surgery is a reliable and reproducible operation that has helped millions of patients walk with less pain. It has helped patients stay independent and live longer more fulfilling lives. Most surgeons perform one type of knee replacement with one type of prosthesis (component). Dr Allison believes that every patient is different. Male and female have different shapes to their bone. People with arthritic knees are of different ages, different activity levels, and have different expectations. We donít all drive the same cars, do the same activities, or wear the same clothes. Thereís no reason to believe that the same operation done with the same components would be right for all patients. Dr. Allison tailors each knee replacement based on the patients individual needs, activity level, and expectations. It is this level of attention to detail that makes the difference in your care. The following pages will explain some of the differences in types of components and approaches.
