In June 2017, we held our 2nd Annual Patient Ambassador Summit, including a photo shoot with our newest ambassadors! The Ambassadors volunteer their time to speak with other prospective patients about their experience with ConforMIS. Look for more from them coming soon... in the meantime, meet them below!
My name is Kathryn Hashagen and #thisismyknee
Returning to your everyday activities takes time after knee replacement, but your active participation in the healing process can help you get there sooner and enjoy a better outcome.
"I've probably seen between 20 and 30 patients who've had the ConforMIS knee replacement. And the result is pretty much the same every time - their motion is much more fluid. They don't have the stiffness at the end range of motion, the extension, the flexion. They just get their mobility much more quickly. And that's the biggest difference that I see, is how quickly they do get their mobility, their range of motion, their flexibility, compared to a traditional total knee replacement"
John Elbert is a physical therapist at Star Orthopedics in La Quinta, California. In this video, he discusses the differences he sees in recovery and rehab in ConforMIS patients when compared to off-the-shelf patients.
