New surgical system available for osteoarthritis16th July 2010
The Sigma High Performance Partial Knee, a new type of surgical implant, can now be used in Europe to treat patients.
The implant works in patients who do not yet require a total knee replacement. Professor David Barrett, consultant orthopaedic surgeon at Southampton University Hospital, said it was a "major step forward for the growing number of active patients in their 40s and 50s requiring knee surgery...it is important that we are now able to provide active patients with a surgical solution better suited to their lifestyle and expectations."
