Knee Replacement Alternatives and the Borg…

knee replacement alternatives

Can a knee replacement alternative make you like the Borg from Star Trek? In the “you just can’t make this stuff up” category this morning is a new surgical system that lives in the category of “Knee replacement alternatives”, but frankly…Damnnn…. (see above left). This is a surgically implantable system known as the “KineSpring” that does much of what a simple knee unloader brace does, but instead is an invasive surgically implantable device. This big piece of metal hardware (almost guaranteed like a knee replacement to increase your serum metal ion levels) takes the weight off of the side of the knee that has arthritis. You might be asking yourself, why??? Why take the surgical risk to do what a simple knee brace will do? Why not just get the darn knee replaced if you’re willing to do this? Why not look at cell based alternatives first? Your guess is as good as mine!
