Technical letter of Introduction- Origin® Custom TKR

Symbios are a leading opinion in the design and manufacture of Custom implants, with an experience spanning 40 years and some 30,000 implantations throughout Europe. Total Knee Replacement (TKR) has become the standard treatment in severe degenerative joint disease of the knee. It is a reliable procedure with some 77,000 TKR’s undertaken each year in the UK using ‘standard’ implants. More recently, irrespective of the mechanical success and the longevity of the implant as reported by our UK’s National Joint Registry, the emphasis has been on patient recorded satisfaction and functional outcomes.

The ORIGIN® Custom implant was developed by Symbios to address patient dissatisfaction following Total Knee Replacement using ‘standard’ implants, where dissatisfaction can be as high as 20%.
