METS Modular Implants

METS SMILES Total Knee Replacement

The SMILES Knee is Stanmore Implants' platform knee which provides the surgeon with a choice of fixed or rotating hinged knees.

The rotating hinge knees are available as a metal cased tibia where augments are required, and as an all-polyethylene tibia which is used when the articular surface of the tibia is in good condition and has had minimal previous surgical intervention.

It is our belief that the more challenging the surgical procedure, the more simple should be the solution. With this in mind our SMILES Knee system requires minimal specialised instrumentation which allows for a clutter-free OR.

Reasons to use our METS SMILES Total Knee Replacement:
  • Minimizes the number of modular components thus reducing fretting
  • Contoured metal-on-plastic bearing surfaces to reduce friction and wear
  • Rotational laxity reduces torsional stress at the cement/bone interfaces
Indications:
  • Gross knee instability
  • Unusual anatomy
  • Failed primary knee replacements
  • Complex revision arthroplasty
