Total Knee Replacement


The total knee prosthesis is made up of 2 metal components which are implanted on the femur and the tibia, and a plastic liner inserted between the 2 implants. A fourth implant (plastic patellar button) is sometimes used to replace the articular surface of the patella on a case-by-case basis.

This video illustrates the kinematic alignment technique of a total knee replacement. It is a modern personalized and physiological technique which respects the ligaments, the anatomy, and the natural biomechanics of the knee. The objective is to optimize the function and feel of the prosthetic knee.
