Rediscover your game

Whether you’re a die-hard or casual professional football fan, you have something in common with many former pro football players. There was a time you could do the things you wanted to do before your knee or hip said “no.” Now you can take the next step to “yes.”

A more natural fit

  • With a robotics-assisted procedure using Smith+Nephew implants, you can keep more of your natural bone and ligaments, including the ACL. That means your body can maintain more of its natural rhythm and step.1,2

widest selection of implants

  • With Smith+Nephew knee implants, your surgeon is choosing from the widest selection available. That means your implant can be precision-matched to feel more like your own knee.3

Proven wear performance

  • Only Smith+Nephew offers knee implants made with a highly durable material called OXINIUM.4*

*The LEGION Primary CR Knee System completed 45 million cycles of in vitro simulated wear testing, which is an estimate of 30 years of activity. Other LEGION VERILAST Primary Knee Systems underwent similar lab testing comparable to industry standards. The results of in vitro wear simulation testing have not been proven to quantitatively predict clinical wear performance. Also, a reduction in total polyethylene wear volume or wear rate alone may not result in improved clinical outcomes as wear particle size and morphology are also critical factors in the evaluation of the potential for wear mediated osteolysis and associated aseptic implant loosening. Particle size and morphology were not evaluated as part of the testing.

Important safety notes: Individual results of joint replacement vary. Implants are intended to relieve joint pain and improve function, but may not produce the same feel or function as your original knee. There are potential risks with joint replacement surgery such as loosening, wear and infection that may result in the need for additional surgery. Patients should not perform high impact activities such as running and jumping unless their surgeon tells them that the bone has healed and these activities are acceptable. Early device failure, breakage or loosening may occur if a surgeon’s limitations on activity level are not followed.
