Knee Replacement

Knee osteoarthritis is by far the most common type of arthritis to cause knee pain, and is simply often referred to as knee arthritis. There are many other less common types of arthritis that can also cause knee pain, such as rheumatoid arthritis, pseudogout, and reactive arthritis. The evaluation of different treatment options is the surgeon’s responsibility.

Unicondylar Knee Replacement

The unicondylar knee replacement (UKR or “Uni”) is a procedure during which a single compartment of an arthritic knee is replaced. A knee joint is comprised of three compartments: the medial condyle (inner), the lateral condyle (outer) and the patellofemoral (kneecap). If damage is limited to the medial compartment of your knee, you may be a candidate for Bodycad’s Reflex Unicompartmental Knee System®.

We Believe in Personalized Restoration

Personalized medicine is a burgeoning field of healthcare in which treatments are specifically tailored to the needs of individual patients thanks to the use of advanced software and technological innovations. As a firm believer in the evolution of therapeutic strategies, Bodycad takes full advantage of modern technologies such as 3D printing, and combines them with existing orthopaedic clinical experience and literature to bring you its unicompartmental knee system.

True Personalization

Contemporary unicondylar knees reshape your bone to fit an off-the-shelf implant. Bodycad’s Reflex Uni® is designed specifically for you, to fit the unique anatomy ofyour knee, and to incorporate your surgeon’s preferences for your best treatment.

One Size Can Never Fit All

It should go without saying, but every patient’s anatomy is unique. Anthropometric data confirms that anatomical measurements can significantly vary from one patient to the next. Off-the-shelf implants simply do not address these differences, and instead are developed based on averages and compromises.

Bodycad’s Reflex Uni® provides a perfect fit with the cut surfaces of the bone, thereby reducing complications related to ill-fitting implants.

Bodycad’s Reflex Uni® ensures an optimized articulating surface between the femur and tibia to better restore the natural movement of your knee, without the compromises associated with off-the-shelf implants. Early results of personalized restorations show the potential for solid implant durability, quicker recovery and rehabilitation, as well as fewer complications.

UKR Surgery

A UKR is normally done through a minimally invasive incision which does not interrupt or disrupt knee musculature. As a result, rehabilitation may be faster, hospitalization time shorter, and a return to normal activities quicker than with total knee replacements. Although it may not be suited to every patient, there is a growing trend for UKRs to be done in outpatient surgery centers. Clinical evidence suggests greater patient satisfaction and quicker recovery.

You should consult with your orthopaedic surgeon for more information. As is the case with all surgeries, a UKR incurs certain risks. Possible complications, as well as your suitability as a candidate for this procedure, should be discussed with your orthopaedic surgeon.
