Medical programme of total knee endoprosthesis implant

Our hospital implants knee endoprosthesis by means of computer navigation. Infrared camera registers points on the knee, and then the computer creates a virtual model of the knee. We determine the necessary resection of the joint surfaces on the computer. By means of the computer, dynamically in real time, we prepare the upper and lower leg bone for endoprosthesis implant. With this technique, the deviations are usually within 1mm, and 1 degree from the desired axle. This facilitates a more precise endoprosthesis implant, which should improve the function and duration of the endoprosthesis.

We have implanted more than 500 knee endoprostheses with this technique so far.
