High Flex Knee Replacement

 

The high flex knee is a replacement where more of the back of the knee is removed so that the patient may bend it farther. Dr. Allison uses this replacement with all quad-sparing approaches and may choose to use it in selected patients who require more knee motion for certain activities. It is usually considered in the highly active patient who wishes to continue high level activities after their knee replacement. The downside is that more bone is removed.
