New Technology for Knee Replacements

Mark Madden, MD

As an orthopaedic surgeon, I have been performing knee replacements for 24 years. I am very excited about a new technology called TruMatch which uses a CT scan to produce custom made knee cutting blocks specifically for the patient. This allows for very accurate placement of the implant and an improvement in patient outcomes. By improving the position of the implant, it can last longer and even prevent uneven wear on the joint. With average activity levels, this knee replacement should last at least 15-20 years. If you would like an evaluation on your knee, please call my office at 703-810-5202 for an appointment.
