Scorpio® Knee Replacement System

Are You Considering Knee Replacement Surgery?

Each patient is unique, but generally candidates for knee replacement surgery have:

  • Pain severe enough to restrict not only work and recreation, but also the routine activities of daily living
  • Pain that is not relieved by more conservative methods of treatment, such as reduced activity, medication or physical therapy
  • Significant joint stiffness and loss of mobility
  • X-rays that show advanced arthritis or other degenerative problems

The National Institutes of Health recently concluded that knee replacement surgery is “a safe and cost-effective treatment for alleviating pain and restoring function in patients who do not respond to non-surgical therapies.” 1

Not all knee replacements are the same

Your doctor has selected Scorpio® because he/she feels it’s a good fit for you and your lifestyle, and because your doctor knows that over half a million Scorpio® knees have been used successfully worldwide during the past decade. The Scorpio NRG® Knee System was designed to provide greater stability than other knee replacements available today.

As you read, make a note of anything you don’t understand. Your doctor will be happy to answer your questions so that you’ll feel comfortable and confident with your chosen treatment plan.
