Bicompartmental Knee Resurfacing with iDuo® G2

The ConforMIS iDuo G2 is a bicompartmental knee resurfacing device designed for patients with arthritic damage to either the medial compartment or lateral compartment, as well as the patellofemoral compartment located behind the kneecap.

Personalized Knee Implants

Combining proven total knee replacement principles for patella treatment with the unique advantages of a ConforMIS partial knee system, ConforMIS has developed a personalized bicompartmental knee implant designed to conform precisely to your unique anatomy. Using iFit technology and information from a standard CT scan, ConforMIS creates personalized implants designed to resurface just the affected compartment.

Increased Bone Preservation

Personalized implants offer unique advantages versus traditional knee replacement. Because each ConforMIS device is created specifically for you, the implants mirror the contours of your knee, providing far more bone preservation. The implants also provide an anatomic fit with far less bone cutting than traditional options.

Patients with bicompartmental joint disease are able to preserve their knee for future treatment options and may also experience faster recovery time and reduced post-operative pain than with traditional total knee replacement. In addition, our unique iJig instrumentation can improve alignment and provide a more natural feel to the knee, which reduces implant wear and extends longevity.

iDuo G2 Features:

  • Personally manufactured for each patient
  • Minimally invasive procedure
  • Bone-, cartilage- and ligament-preserving
  • Appropriate for young, active patients
  • Potential for less post-operative pain and faster recovery
  • Preserves the ability to move to other treatment options in the future

The Bicompartmental Knee Process

Should you and your surgeon determine that you are a good candidate for the iDuo G2, he or she will give you an order for a CT scan. Your CT scan will then be sent to ConforMIS for review and implant production. Your iDuo G2 should be completed approximately six weeks from receipt of the scan.

The personalized implant will be shipped to your surgeon along with personalized surgical instruments derived from your CT scan called iJigs. The iJigs will aid the surgeon in determining the precise placement of your implant.

Knee Implants That Get You Back on Your Feet Faster

Following surgery, your care will focus on reducing and controlling swelling, pain management and physical therapy. You may need to wear a brace for a few weeks.

While every person's experience is different, many are able to weight-bear and walk with an aid within hours of surgery. Most people return to activities of daily living within six weeks. More physically demanding activities, such as sports, may take up to three months. Consult your doctor or physical therapist about your individual goals and limitations.
