Smith+Nephew introduced two significant new technologies to its total knee arthroplasty (TKA) portfolio: the JOURNEY II Medial Dished (MD) for TKA and SYNC Performance Instruments.
The design goal of the entire JOURNEY II family is to recreate the normal shapes, position and motion of the healthy knee. JOURNEY II MD is designed to provide more normal kinematics despite the condition or presence of the posterior cruciate ligament. Expected to enter initial commercial release later this fall, it aims to improve patient function, enable smoother patient recovery and deliver higher patient satisfaction.
Smith+Nephew is further bolstering its TKA portfolio with the launch of SYNC Performance Instruments. Developed to help improve the surgeon's experience with a new ergonomic design, a reduction in the number of instruments and a compact tray design. SYNC enables a streamlined, user-friendly and intuitive solution with intraoperative flexibility. Additionally, a customized tray configuration helps minimize OR footprint and can reduce the burden on central sterilization.
