Just like every patient, every surgeon is unique. For example, the time it takes to perform a knee replacement varies from surgeon to surgeon. Because VISIONAIRE Patient Matched Technology removes multiple steps from the traditional knee replacement process, your time under anesthesia may be reduced.1 While this doesn't eliminate the risks associated with the surgery, it may help limit blood loss and lower concerns such as infection, heart failure or stroke.
Individual results of joint replacement vary. Implants are intended to relieve knee pain and improve function, but may not produce the same feel or function as your original knee. There are potential risks with knee replacement surgery such as loosening, wear and infection that may result in the need for additional surgery. Patients should not perform high impact activities such as running and jumping unless their surgeon tells them that the bone has healed and these activities are acceptable. Early device failure, breakage or loosening may occur if a surgeon's limitations on activity level are not followed.
