Hi

It would appear that this is new technology, and is still undergoing trials.  http://www.moximed.com/ous/medpros/kinespringsystem.php

All publications are dated 2011 and 2012.

I had an HTO in November with a relatively new implant (iBalance) and am doing extremely well.

Good luck with your choice.

WD

Thank you for sharing your experience with the Kinespring.  I am interested in learning as much as possible, especially from a patient's viewpoint. 

I am 32 years old, and have had 8 surgeries for the medial side of my right knee including two meniscal transplants.  I am unfortunately having knee pain in full extension and back to wearing knee braces, etc.  I am optimistic about the Kinespring transplant, however!  I am a candidate to receive one next month and I am hoping for the best, as we all are.

I have a few questions for those who have had one:  how much pain were you in prior to the implant vs. post implant?  How is your range of motion?

Thanks!

I ve got a very good surgeon that I trust , a few years ago he stopped the op (OATS) and ask a Prof that invented OATS to travel from Munich (600miles) to help 4 days later.  I ll keep up the posts
