VERILAST Knee

VERILAST Knee

 

Knee replacements can be overwhelming and anxiety-provoking. Some patients come in for consultation appointments and worry that their potential knee implant will feel unnatural or will be unsuccessful in its ability to withstand the rigors of life. The good news is there have been some incredibly significant advancements in joint replacement materials in the last few decades to ensure a patient’s happiness and health after knee replacement surgery.

 

One example of such an advancement is the VERILAST Knee Technology, which helps deliver greater strength and natural range of motion to knee implants. VERILAST Knee Technology implants are made of a special Oxinium material characterized by a hard ceramic surface that resists roughening and is proven to last longer than traditional knee implant materials. This new technology is one of few implants that addresses implant wear, one of the most commonly cited concerns about knee replacement surgery.

 

Even with the improvements in knee replacement technology, the decision to go through with such a procedure is very personal and should be handled with care. Knee replacement surgery has been proven to be statistically safe and successful but still comes with its own set of risks. You should complete extensive and thorough research, discuss your options with your primary care doctor and an orthopedic surgeon. Also, make sure you talk things over with your family and loved ones before making any surgical decision.

 

*Safety Note: Knee replacement surgery is intended to relieve knee pain and improve knee functions. However, implants may not produce the same feel or function as your original knee. There are potential risks with knee replacement surgery such as loosening, fracture, dislocation, wear and infection that may result in the need for additional surgery. Longevity of implants depends on many factors, such as types of activities and weight. Do not perform high impact activities such as running and jumping unless your surgeon tells you the bone has healed and these activities are acceptable. Early device failure, breakage or loosening may occur if you do not follow your surgeon’s limitations on activity level. Early failure can happen if you do not guard your knee joint from overloading due to activity level, failure to control body weight or accidents such as falls. Talk to your doctor to determine what treatment may be best for you.
