FARMINGTON, Conn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- ORLive.com, BroadcastMed’s premiere surgical broadcasting website, is proud to present a live webinar on the ConforMIS iTotal® G2 Patient-Specific Knee Replacement System on November 8th at 7:00pm EST. The iTotal, recognized as one of the most innovative new medical devices by the Medical Design Excellence Awards, is the only individualized total knee system on the market today with both patient-specific implants and instrumentation.
Orthopedic surgeon Gregory M. Martin, MD, will perform the procedure from the Orthopedic Institute at JFK Medical Center in Atlantis, Florida. Following the surgery, Dr. Martin will be available for questions about the iTotal knee replacement system.
The iTotal is the only total knee replacement system that offers true patient-specific implants and instrumentation, with unique advantages compared to traditional knee replacements. Traditional knee replacements use a limited range of off-the-shelf sizes and shapes, requiring a surgeon to make any necessary adjustments during the operation. With iTotal, the process starts well before the surgery using advanced 3D imaging technology to create implants and instrumentation designed to achieve precise anatomic fit and preserve more of the patient's anatomy than a standard total knee replacement. In addition, iTotal preserves the patient's natural curvature with the potential for a more natural kinematic result.
