The iTotal Process

Step 1: Scheduling a CT scan.
Developing your personal implant for iTotal knee replacement surgery starts with images of your knee. Your doctor will order a diagnostic scan at one of Gwinnett Medical Center’s conveniently located imaging centers.

Step 2: Getting your knee scanned.
The imaging center will take a CT scan of your knee and send a diagnostic report to your doctor for evaluation.

Step 3: Re-creating your knee.
Using your CT scan, a computer-generated 3D virtual model of your knee joint will be developed and used to create a custom implant for a personalized fit and alignment.

Step 4: Personalizing the implant.
Using a proprietary process, your implants will be designed and manufactured for delivery in just seven weeks.

Step 5: Preparing for surgery.
Your implant will be delivered to your surgeon for the day of the surgery. Talk to your doctor about scheduling your surgery at Gwinnett Medical Center–Lawrenceville or Gwinnett Medical Center–Duluth.

Step 6: Getting back on your feet.
While everyone’s surgical experience is different, many people return to their daily activities with six weeks of their iTotal knee replacement. More physical activities, such as sports, may take up to three months. Talk to your doctor or physical therapist about your personal goals and limitations.
