Medacta®’s mission is to help patients regain a healthier and more active lifestyle through products and services that make surgery and rehabilitation faster, more effective and less painful. The appropriate education of patients and general practitioners is crucial in order to increase the awareness of the most effective procedures in joint replacement.
The ‘Medacta® Practice Development Plan’ is a services package, created to support surgeons in organising educational meetings with patients and general practitioners. The Medacta® Practice Development Plan’s intention is to assist surgeons in the promotion of their practice and interaction with the patient; a series of patient oriented documents and marketing tools have been created for this purpose.
One of the main tools is the Patient Area on the Medacta® Website (www.medacta.com), a whole section of the Medacta institutional Website dedicated to the patient’s information.
Within this section, which includes a general explanation of joint replacement surgery and the advantages associated with an AMIS® or a MyKnee® surgery, the patient can access the SURGEON LOCATOR.
This internal search engine allows the patient to find the orthopaedic surgeon in his area who is using AMIS® approach or the MyKnee® instrumentation.
Brochures and videos are available for distribution during the meetings with patients or general practitioners and for placing in the waiting room to help explain the AMIS® and MyKnee® concepts in a relaxed, patient-friendly way.
