Rotating platform knee replacements are specially designed to mimic the natural movement of the knee. While performing everyday activities, such as walking, driving, squatting, or kneeling, your knee can bend to the right or left as much as 15˚. The rotating platform knee replacement is different from traditional knee replacement implants in that it allows for this bending and rotating from side to side.
Benefits of the Sigma® Rotating Platform Knee Replacement include:
- More natural knee movements
- Reduced wear on the implant
- Ideal for golfers and tennis players
Board-certified orthopaedic surgeon Jason W. Thackeray, M.D., is one of only two surgeons in the region to utilize this technology.
