LEGION Total Knee System with VERILAST Technology in an Active Patient

Kace Ezzet, MD, will demonstrate his approach to total knee arthroplasty for a patient in the fastest growing patient demographic-the younger, more active patient. This total knee replacement will feature the LEGION Total Knee System from Smith & Nephew Orthopaedics. The LEGION Total Knee System is a comprehensive and seamless system that empowers surgeons to address diverse surgical challenges and provide personalized joint care. The system includes simple solutions for addressing the increasingly diverse needs of your patients.

It has been shown that polyethylene wear is a leading cause of failure in TKA1. As the young active patient segment continues to grow, the longevity of the implant will take on ever increasing importance. This surgery will feature the LEGION Total Knee System with VERILAST Technology. VERILAST Technology is the only advanced bearing solution that addresses both sides of the bearing couple by combining the award winning OXINIUM Alloy with a highly cross-linked polyethylene specifically engineered for the demands of TKA.

This LEGION system also features intuitive, easy-to-use instrumentation that allows you to address diverse surgical challenges with one A-P Resection, one system and one company.

The result is the best possible clinical outcome with optimum efficiency and longevity.
That is The Power of Simplicity
