Using Sensor Technology to Diagnose and Precisely Correct TKR Failures During Revision Surgery

In the last of three blog posts on the topic of unsatisfactory results post-TKR (total knee replacement), I will discuss using kinematic sensor technology to help me more precisely diagnose and correct a painful TKR.

Poor Results after TKR Due to Infection: Diagnosis and Treatment

For the second of three blog posts about post-surgical complications and unsatisfactory results after total knee replacement (TKR), I will discuss the critical need to rule out infection and if present, how to treat it.

Correcting Post-Surgical Complications and Unsatisfactory Results

In my previous blog post, I shared that one out of five people (approximately 20 percent) who undergo Total Knee Replacement (TKR) are not satisfied with the result. I discussed the methods we use to understand the exact cause/causes of unsatisfactory outcomes, in order to improve these results.

Early Results Indicate the VERASENSE Knee System Is a Game Changer for Precision Balance During Total Knee Replacement

In a previous blog, I discussed that by using VERASENSE sensor-assisted technology, I see more consistently excellent results after total knee replacement (TKR) and revision TKR surgery.

The Unhappy Total Knee Replacement Patient: Figuring out What Is Wrong

Unfortunately, there are a significant number of people who have undergone total knee replacement (TKR) and are not happy with the result. Some studies estimate 20% or more fall into this category. Defining success or a “satisfactory result” can mean two very different things to an individual who had the total knee versus the surgeon who implanted it.

The Verasense Knee System

Traditionally during total knee replacement (TKR), surgeons have had to balance the prosthetic knee by feeling the tension in the ligaments throughout the range of motion.

Guest Blog: “My Experience with Total Knee Surgery,” by Edward Stupi

At the Leone Center for Orthopedic Care, we firmly believe that patients who have the most information possible about what to expect before and after surgery not only have a better experience but a quicker recovery.

Multiple studies have reported that the percentage of patients who are completely satisfied after total knee replacement surgery is considerably less than with patients who have had a total hip replacement.
