Dr. Clegg has worked with orthopedic implant scientists to develop a state of the art knee replacement that will last longer than traditional implants and feel more like your normal knee. With this newer design, the shape of the implant better matches the patients normal anatomy and function. We believe that these newer designs can last up to 30 years or more.
A muscle sparing total knee replacement is a surgery performed through a smaller than traditional incision and using special techniques which allow for the surgery to be performed without cutting through the muscle surrounding the knee joint. This results in less pain, faster recovery and return to normal activities. This less invasive approach allows a quicker return to work.
Knee replacement involves removing the arthritic/damaged knee surface and replacing it with an implant that allows for smooth and pain-free return of knee function.
Utilizing this less invasive technique for knee replacement along with a comprehensive rapid recovery protocol allows patients to be up and walking right after surgery with most patients being able to return home the same day.
