Fisrt iDuo ConforMIS bicompartmental patient specific knee replacement in the NHS done at Whiston Hospital by Mr. Attar
Patient specific knee replacements have shown advantages over routine on the shelf knee replacements. Reduced hospital stay, improved function, reduced dissatisfaction and pain rates and some of the advantages.
In suitable patients when 2 areas of the knee are affected with arthritis, an iDuo bicompartmental knee replacement is a better option to address this as opposed to a total knee replacement which is most often done.

Mr. Attar gave a presentation on patient specific knee replacements, highlighting the advantages, favourable outcomes and current results.
