Knee pain, stiffness, instability, and lack of full motion can be symptoms of an injury, arthritis, osteoarthritis or knee ligament, cartilage, or meniscus tear.

Dr. Michael Wind is a board certified orthopedic surgeon who elected to further his expertise in knee care by completing fellowship-training in adult reconstructive surgery of the knee.

Patient Matched Knee Replacement
Recent advancements in orthopedic surgery have significantly improved the knee joint replacement experience for both knee surgeons and patients. Attaining a great knee implant fit has always been a challenge and concern. The better an artificial knee joint aligns, the longer it may last. The Patient Matched Knee Replacement uses patient-specific surgical instruments to ensure the precise alignment of the artificial knee joint.
The Patient Matched Knee Replacement uses MRI images and computer technology to create a custom set of surgical instruments and guides based on a patient's unique knee anatomy. The surgical plan is mapped out in advance to accurately align an implant with the knee. The Patient Matched Knee Replacement is associated with less time under anesthesia, less blood loss, decreased pain, lower risk of infection, and a faster recovery time. Because the Patient Matched Knee Replacement ensures precise knee implant alignment, the implant is expected to last longer than traditional total knee implants.
