Two-Year Follow-up for the LIFT Implant

ZKR Orthopedics, Inc. LIFT Implant

I’m constantly asked by patients about new technology to avoid knee replacement surgery. This new device (the LIFT implant) is designed to reduce stress on the patellofemoral joint with a minimally invasive surgery. Currently, the surgical options for patients with cartilage wear or arthritis localized the the front of the knee ranges from cartilage transplants to osteotomies (bone-cutting surgery to realign the knee) to partial knee replacements. This new device has encouraging early results in a small European trial and I look forward to the FDA trial in the United States.
