Smith & Nephew JOURNEY II XR Knee Replacement in NYC
What is the Smith & Nephew JOURNEY II XR?
If you are considering a total knee replacement, the JOURNEY II XR is one of the latest innovation in knee replacement technology that allows patients to receive a total knee replacement and retain their ACL and PCL, two ligaments of the knee joint that work together to help stabilize your joint and provide range of motion. By retaining the ACL and PCL, the JOURNEY II XR can help you to maintain natural movement of your knee post-surgery. Most knee replacement systems replace the ACL and many replace both the ACL and PCL. By maintaining these ligaments we may be able to produce a more normal feeling knee replacement. This implant is quite new on the market and is being used in very selective cases. Ask Dr. Mayman if you may be a candidate for this implant. As with any new implant, long term outcome data is not yet available. Any new prosthetic design may have additional risks associated with its use.

The JOURNEY II XR can be implanted via traditional total knee replacement surgery or with the aid of robotic-assisted technology.
