MOUNT KISCO, N.Y. -- For those suffering from chronic knee pain, sometimes a complete knee replacement can be the only option to restore mobility. 

Advancements in knee surgery allow for a highly customized knee replacement. Using 3D modeling, a knee implant is tailored specifically for each patient. The 3D model results in a better-alignment that is more accurately sized for the patient and surgically installed in less time. A perfectly aligned joint can last 20 to 30 years, eliminating the need for costly and painful supplementary surgeries. 

"With this computer model, I get to rotate the model in a way I never could during surgery," said Dr. David Yasgur, Director of Quality and Outcomes, at the Orthopedic and Spine Institute at Northern Westchester Hospital. "With this computer modeling, you get a better alignment, and better installation in less time." 

Learn more by visiting Northern Westchester Hospital's Orthopedic and Spine Institute.

Next week, Northern Westchester Hospital will discuss partial knee replacements, for when a full replacement isn't needed.
