Dr. Philip Lahey IV performs TruMatch® Total Knee Replacements. This is a joint replacement technique that features patient-specific instrumentation for precise alignment and faster, safer, more efficient surgery. A simple CT scan is used to develop a 3-D computerized model of the knee and create a customized surgical guide, based on each patient’s unique anatomy. With fewer surgical steps and less equipment in the OR, surgery is quicker, potentially decreasing the chance of complications. The customized surgical guide improves the placement and positioning of the implant, which is critical for overall performance and long-term success. This level of precision improves alignment and stability, which results in less wear and tear over time and helps the implant last longer.
