How Can VISIONAIRE Patient Matched Technology Help with Implant Placement?

Visionaire Knee

Because VISIONAIRE Patient Matched Technology uses the data directly obtained by your MRI and x-ray images to map out your knee and establish your body's true alignment, your surgeon will arrive in the operating room with a greater knowledge of your knee.

He or she will also arrive with customized cutting blocks that match the exact outer shape and contours of your knee. During pre-surgical work, your surgeon will work with our engineers to determine the exact bone cuts and angles necessary to remove as little bone as possible while still positioning your implant in its optimal location.

Potentially, this technology allows your surgeon to digitally perform and adjust your specific knee replacement multiple times before ever making the first incision in your knee.

VISIONAIRE Patient Matched Technology is exclusive to Smith & Nephew. Not every surgeon has been trained to use VISIONAIRE Technology. To find a trained Knee surgeon near you, use our Find a Physician locator.

Important Safety Notes

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.
