Conemaugh Memorial Medical Center is one of the first in the region to offer “gender-specific” knee replacements that reflect the unique shape and size of women’s knees.

Specially designed for women, the replacement has a thinner profile and is better proportioned for women’s anatomy. The result? More natural movement of the kneecap and increased range of motion. The replacements also help reduce damage to surrounding ligaments and tendons, often caused by bulkier implants that can hang over the bone and irritate nearby tissues.

Please talk with your orthopedic surgeon about this new technology to determine if it’s right for you.
