Legacy LPS Flex

Introducing the latest innovation in total knee replacement treatments – the Legacy LPS Flex. Whether your knees have been damaged as a result of arthritis or a traumatic injury, Blue Tree Clinics are here to help. One such treatment that we are fully equipped to provide is the Legacy LPS Flex system – a posterior stabilised prosthesis that has been cleverly designed to accommodate a greater range of motion.

The Legacy LPS Flex has been designed for joint surface erosion while still allowing for full flexion ability. So whether you have limited or no mobility in your knees, these implants are guaranteed to have a noticeable effect. Here at Blue Tree Clinics, we are more than happy to discuss your particular needs and provide you with a solution that is right for you. To find out more about the Legacy LPS Flex and the procedure itself, read on below.

 

Causes

As mentioned above, the most common cause of damage to the knee joint occurs as a result of diseases such as arthritis. Arthritis is an auto-immune disease that causes the white blood cells to actively attack the joints, ligaments and muscles. Other causes include injuries resulting from a major trauma as well as physical activities such as sports.

Of course, your knees can also deteriorate simply as a result of age and general wear and tear, e.g. overexertion of the joints through repetitive motion. At Blue Tree Clinics, we are able to adapt our treatment approach in-line with your requirements. If you’re physically capable or are participating in recreational/ work activities or cultural customs that require deep flexion, make sure you get in touch with us today.

 

Treatment

Before we are able to recommend fitting you with the Legacy LPS Flex implant, we first start by assessing your suitability. This includes a full examination as well as a complete review of your medical history. If the issue is localised to one knee compartment, we will usually suggest unicompartmental knee arthroplasty as an alternative to the Legacy LPS Flex implant.

Once we have assessed you for the implant and determined that you are a suitable candidate, we will discuss with you a date to have the system fitted that is convenient for you. Our skilled orthopedic specialists in Dubai will carry out the procedure with an aim to minimise your recovery time. The procedure involves using bone cement to attach metal components directly to the bones.

The Legacy LPS Flex implant offers up to 155 degrees of flexion compared with the benchmark standard of 120 degrees that most patients aim for. This will greatly enhance your ability to perform functions such as sitting and standing, walking and climbing stairs. Plus, with the focus on posterior stabilisation, you’ll experience minimal or no discomfort as well as a lowered risk of the implant failing.

Testimonial

“Having experienced issues with my right knee for several years, I decided to seek out professional help. My appointment with Dr. Ansari was very helpful and I came away feeling positive. We discussed the cause of my knee complaint in great detail and Dr. Ansari was more than happy to walk me through my treatment plan and answer any questions I had about the Legacy implant.”-Jiso
