Customized knee - special joint replacement

Klinika Dr. Pírka (Dr. Pírek's clinic) also performs customized knee replacement surgeries as part of total joint replacement surgeries. 

You can consult our orthopaedic surgeons about the suitability of such an operation.

Unique technology allows us to design and manufacture a set of cutting blocks based on the patient's own anatomy.

Using an MRI of the patient's knee, along with a complete X-ray of the lower extremity, two cutting blocks are designed and fabricated to perform an arthroplasty (replacement) of the patient's knee joint.

This custom fitting allows the orthopaedic surgeon to make absolutely precise bone cuts in the ideal rotation and inclination required for optimal placement of the knee implant. 

Klinika Dr. Pírka offers this technology using a method that has the necessary approvals and European certifications.

Benefits for the patient:

  • More precise placement of the knee replacement implants, which is crucial for its proper function and durability
  • Faster surgery - leads to less blood loss
  • Greater safety for the patient - up to 22 fewer surgical steps
  • Less invasive surgery - more gentle intervention on the patient's bones and tissues
  • Shorter and gentler anaesthesia - the patient is under anaesthesia for a shorter period of time
  • Lower risk of other complications - fat embolism, deep vein thrombosis
  • Shorter rehabilitation - faster return to normal life
  • Faster and more effective recovery

The costs associated with the preparation and production of a customized artificial joint are not covered by health insurance.
