Medacta, Geisinger Partner on Patient Outcomes Guarantees

Geisinger and Medacta will partner to offer a two-year guarantee for total hip, knee and shoulder replacement surgeries. The guarantee applies to all patients who are a member of a qualifying Geisinger Health Plan and remain in the care of a Geisinger provider.

Geisinger, through its partnership with Medacta, also offers a lifetime guarantee for total hip, knee and revision knee replacement surgeries for qualifying patients.

Medacta Solutions, among which its patient-matched technologies (MyKnee®, MyShoulder®, MyHip®) to facilitate accurate implant positioning and OR efficiency through advanced 3D pre-operative planning and patient specific instruments, and its Anterior Minimally Invasive Surgery (AMIS®) technique for hip replacements, are designed to enable a healthy and active lifestyle for every patient, reducing postoperative pain and shortening the rehabilitation time.

“The promotion of patient well-being by advancing surgical approaches, implants and instruments through responsible innovation, is a cornerstone of Medacta’s mission,” said Francesco Siccardi, Chief Executive Officer at Medacta International. “This expansion of our successful value-based initiatives with Geisinger, initiated in 2018 launching the hip replacement program with positive responses, demonstrates how Medacta brings our patient focused mission to life.”

In 2014, Geisinger launched ProvenCare Hip Fracture, Total Hip, Total Knee and Lumbar Spine. In 2018, in association with Medacta, Geisinger became the first health system to offer a lifetime guarantee for eligible total hip replacements. In 2019, Geisinger extended the same lifetime guarantee to eligible new knee replacement surgeries.
