Knee Replacement Surgery: New implants are more stable, natural-feeling
Posted on Aug 12, 2013
Today’s knee replacements involve using a hinged metal knee to replace the patient’s own damaged bone. However, if the implant cannot withstand everyday stresses, it can become loose and very painful. To help address this issue, manufacturers have been trying to improve knee implants.
One such improvement is the ATTUNE Knee System, which was recently launched by DePuy Synthes. The ATTUNE Knee is designed to help improve patients’ stability and motion. It uses special technologies that reduce stresses on the implant and prevent wear and tear.
You may need knee replacement surgery after a NJ work injury. If this happens, your employer is required to pay for the procedure and all related medical care. You may also be entitled to wage compensation and a cash settlement for your injuries. A NJ workers’ comp attorney can make sure that you receive all of the benefits you deserve.
