The Conformis iTotal custom-made knee – the very best knee prosthesis on the market!

Great news – the 20th annual report of the National Joint Register has recently been published, and this shows that the Conformis iTotal custom-made knee replacement prosthesis gives the best 10-year results of any knee prosthesis on the market, with the lowest revision rates!

The 10-year revision rates for the Conformis iTotal prosthesis are 1.23%, compared to the average figure for all types of knee prosthesis of approximately  5% – which equates to an over 75% reduction in the risk of revision!


Conformis iTotal-CR Knee Replacement Awarded “5A” Rating from ODEP

ODEP is an independent panel of leading orthopedic surgeons and experts in the UK that evaluates data related to use of hip and knee implant technologies and provides a rating to indicate performance in key areas including survivorship. ODEP provides the National Health Service (NHS) with an approved list of products that meet the revision rate standard set by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) in the UK.

“We are pleased to have received the ODEP 5A rating,” said Mark Augusti, Chief Executive Officer and President of Conformis. “This rating provides another independent verification that our design philosophy, predicated on patient-conforming implants, results in performance where it counts the most—in patients. We hope that this 5A rating will provide more confidence to physicians that are considering offering our unique technology to their patients. In addition, we believe our results should provide an opportunity for Conformis to expand availability of our product at NHS facilities in the United Kingdom.”
