Center for Orthopedic Excellence
Get Back in the Game with ShapeMatch from IVCH!
Describing Steve Opsal as active would be an understatement! In addition to raising his three young sons, he also serves as a volunteer coach for youth baseball and football. So, when severe knee pain started affecting his ability to keep up, he knew it was time to do something about it.
Steve called the award-winning team at the IVCH Center for Orthopedic Excellence. At his consultation, he learned about an all-new knee replacement option: the Stryker Triathlon Custom-Fit Knee with ShapeMatch Technology implant. This innovative procedure uses 3-D imaging software to fit each patient with an implant customized for his or her individual anatomy. Plus, studies have shown it offers several benefits over traditional knee replacements, including:
- A single-radius implant, promoting easier motion
- An advanced bearing technology, demonstrating a lower wear rate and indicating a longer-lasting implant
- A more efficient process, saving patients time and money
- A quicker return to functional activities, allowing patients to get back in action faster
By choosing the IVCH Center for Orthopedic Excellence, Steve was confident he would receive the highest level of care before, during and after surgery. His board-certified orthopedic surgeon, Peter Meier, MD, was the first orthopedic surgeon in the area to use the ShapeMatch system. In addition, IVCH has been recognized for orthopedic excellence by HealthGrades™ for seven years running, having received multiple joint replacement awards, as well as their 5-Star rating for Total Knee Replacement for six years in a row (2007-2012)!
If you’re ready for your own remarkable restoration, call the IVCH Center for Orthopedic Excellence to schedule a consultation. Before you know it, you’ll be back in the game… just like Steve!
