The Kennedy Center Offers Game Changing Total Knee Replacement that Preserves the Patient’s ACL

In 2013, the United States FDA approved the only ACL preserving total knee implant available in the country. And Jeffrey McLaughlin, MD is now the only orthopedic surgeon north of Milwaukee who is FDA trained to use this innovative knee implant.
OSHKOSH, Wis. - Aug. 15, 2014 - PRLog -- This is a very big deal for people who want need a knee replacement but want to stay active longer.  In every traditional total knee replacement, the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is removed.  But with this revolutionary new knee implant, patients retain their ACL after surgery.

Why should people care about keeping their ACL?  People care because the ACL is the most important ligament in the knee providing stability and strength.  Just ask any athlete who has torn their ACL and they’ll say that their knee is never the same again.

Patients in the FDA study who have had both a traditional total knee and the new ACL sparing total knee remark that the ACL sparing knee “feels more natural.”  And more than 89% of these patients report that they prefer the ACL sparing knee to the traditional knee replacement.

The “U” shaped implant fits around both the ACL and PCL (Posterior Cruciate Ligament) which allows patients to do activities that were difficult to perform comfortably with a traditional knee.  Some of these activities include pivoting, twisting and sudden stopping required in tennis, golf and everyday work.
