When it comes to knee replacement surgery, Watauga Medical Center is on the cutting edge. Adding more to the focus of personalization, pre-surgery MRI imaging allows a model of a patient’s knee to be produced. If you are a candidate for this technique, the model will serve as a guide for the placement of your knee implants.
Feedback from patients after a few months of this new surgical strategy, referred to as Zimmer Patient Specific Instruments, has been great. Slight tweaks and adjustments made for each person’s knee increases comfort from day one, and leads to great outcomes during post-surgery rehabilitation.
Watauga Medical Center offers patient-centered care and comfort, patient rehabilitation, and a team approach between the patient, their caregiver, and the hospital. The team is with patients every step of the way to ensure a seamless transition into a more comfortable life after surgery.
