Associate Professor Hope uses state of the art technology to perform knee replacements.
‘MyKnee’ knee replacements are bioengineering technology from Switzerland, which use computer generated 3D models of patient’s knee joints to design custom made cutting blocks specific to the individual.
‘MyKnee’ technology achieves excellent limb alignment and ligament balance.
‘MyKnee’ technology does not require metal rods to be pushed down through the hollow of the thigh and shinbone, which traditional knee replacements require for limb alignment.
A/Prof Hope performs his ‘MyKnee’ operations tourniquet free – this allows the blood to flow freely through the patient’s affected limb area during surgery resulting in less pain and a faster recovery time.
