Smith & Nephew’s JOURNEY DEUCE partial knee, a member of the high performance JOURNEY knee family, is an exciting new alternative to total knee replacement.
Because of the new technology used in the one-of-a-kind JOURNEY DEUCE system, patients with knee arthritis isolated to just part of their knee–thought to be as many as 70% of knee replacement candidates–now have an “early intervention” surgical option to end their debilitating pain.
This minimally invasive, partial knee replacement provides many potential benefits for patients, including:
- Bone Preservation: The JOURNEY DEUCE preserves healthy, pain-free bone that would otherwise be sacrificed during total knee replacement. In fact, the procedure allows for the preservation of a full 50% of the bone traditionally removed during total knee replacement.
- Tissue Preservation: The JOURNEY DEUCE preserves your ACL and PCL. These ligaments provide natural stability during physical activity, such as walking, climbing stairs or simply standing up from a seated position. Patients who have received a traditional total knee replacement often notice a difference in stability during these activities.
- OXINIUM◊ Technology: The JOURNEY DEUCE is made with Smith & Nephew’s exclusive OXINIUM material, a lightweight, wear-reducing metal that may extend the life of your implant. Click here to read more about OXINIUM technology.
