Patient Specific Instruments

At Delhi Institute of Trauma and Orthopedics there are facilities for customizing your own personalized instruments for your knee replacement. After you decide on your surgery, an MRI of your knees will be done at the hospital to map out a complete detailed structure of your knee joint. This MRI is uploaded to the factory in USA where they create a model of your knee and develop instruments required for your operation.
These instruments are then shipped to us which are then used during your surgery. This advanced technique results in a customized operation specially for you and results in a more accurate fitting of the artificial joint. The operation becomes simpler and easier, the recovery is faster and the long-term success will undoubtedly be better.
