Precision knee placement

How can VISIONAIRE◊ Patient Matched Technology help with implant placement?

Because VISIONAIRE Patient Matched Technology uses the data directly obtained by your MRI and x-ray images to map out your knee and establish your body's true alignment, your surgeon will arrive in the operating room with a greater knowledge of your knee.

He or she will also arrive with customized cutting blocks that match the exact outer shape and contours of your knee. During pre-surgical work, your surgeon will work with our engineers to determine the exact bone cuts and angles necessary to remove as little bone as possible while still positioning your implant in its optimal location.

Potentially, this technology allows your surgeon to digitally perform and adjust your specific knee replacement multiple times before ever making the first incision in your knee.
