Addressing Patient Satisfaction with Patient Specific Alignment (PSA) & The ATTUNE® Knee System
Alternative alignment techniques in total knee arthroplasty are quickly becoming a major topic when discussing early patient satisfaction scores.
Not every patient looks the same, so why should all my patients get the same total knee alignment?
That was the question posed by the faculty to a very receptive audience at the very first PSA ATTUNE® Knee System course. Doctors Ryan Nunley (Moderator), Michael Lee, Thomas Smith, and Douglas Unis presented their experience with an alternative alignment surgical technique that seeks to improve knee joint stability by slightly altering bony resections to accommodate a more natural joint line and reduced soft-tissue stripping. DePuy Synthes is taking the lead by being the first company to introduce an FDA-approved Patient Specific Alignment surgical technique that will further leverage the strengths of the ATTUNE Knee design.
