"I've probably seen between 20 and 30 patients who've had the ConforMIS knee replacement. And the result is pretty much the same every time - their motion is much more fluid. They don't have the stiffness at the end range of motion, the extension, the flexion. They just get their mobility much more quickly. And that's the biggest difference that I see, is how quickly they do get their mobility, their range of motion, their flexibility, compared to a traditional total knee replacement"
John Elbert is a physical therapist at Star Orthopedics in La Quinta, California. In this video, he discusses the differences he sees in recovery and rehab in ConforMIS patients when compared to off-the-shelf patients.
