The Arthrosurface Advantage!

December 19, 2012

HemiCAP technology was designed for patients who want to continue working, have more active lifestyles and have a need for joint preserving treatments. Many of these patients are looking for a treatment option that “bridges the gap” between microfracture/injections and total joint replacement.

Clinical studies demonstrate positive clinical outcomes across different joints with over 40,000 HemiCAPs implanted globally.

Patients report outstanding pain relief, rapid recovery times and significant range of motion improvements in multi-center studies and the procedure may be performed on outpatient basis.

Arthrosurface Joint Restoration feels more Natural because:

  • only the defect or damaged area is restored
  • healthy bone, cartilage and ligaments are preserved
  • the implant is custom fit to every patient
  • the defect is restored with the patients’ own joint curvatures
  • the implant is thin, strong and less invasive
  • the procedure can be done on an outpatient basis
  • the rehabilitation is usually shorter and less cumbersome
  • the return to work and activity is faster
  • a traditional joint replacement may be delayed or avoided

Joint Replacements feel UN-natural because:

  • artificial joints don’t function and feel like your joint
  • healthy bone, cartilage and ligaments are not preserved
  • your ACL and PCL are removed
  • significant amounts of bone and tissues are removed
  • the normal sensation feedback from my joint is interrupted
  • metal and plastic joints do not restore normal motion
  • the implants are large, bulky and thick
  • most procedures are performed on an inpatient basis
  • rehab can take months especially for higher activity levels
  • you will probably not be able to perform high demand sports
  • you will be limited on how much weight you can lift
