In today’s procedure, Dr. Manning will utilize Medacta’s integrated knee platform, including the GMK Sphere Medially Stabilized Knee, which is designed to deliver maximum functional stability to a replaced knee, allowing for improved patient satisfaction and reduced post-operative pain.
Prior to surgery, as part of his pre-operative 3D planning, Dr. Manning employed Medacta’s MyKnee Patient-Matched Technology to turn CT images of the patient’s unique anatomy into patient-specific cutting blocks. In the operating room, Dr. Manning will use Medacta’s GMK Efficiency Single Use Instruments – the third pillar of the platform debuted earlier this year.
Delivered sterile and ready for use, the GMK Efficiency instruments complement Medacta’s GMK Sphere and MyKnee to create a holistic platform that delivers even greater improvements in hospital and ambulatory surgery center (ASC) efficiency, allows for significant cost savings and supports positive patient outcomes.
Dr. Manning’s surgical presentation will be broadcast live today, Monday, May 23, 2016 at 2:40 p.m. PDT. Medacta’s GMK Sphere, MyKnee and GMK Efficiency Single Use Instruments will be on display at the company’s booth in the Exhibitor Hall.
