Advanced Total Knee

Oxidized Zirconium Ceramic Surface

Journey Knee
The Oxidized Zirconium Ceramic Surface Total Knee Replacement System utilizes a material called oxinium, that allows for an incredibly strong and long lasting implant. The unique design also allows the knee to move more naturally.

The Oxidized Zirconium Ceramic Surface is a first-of-its-kind knee replacement that combines the stability and natural motion of the human knee with new low-friction materials. The result is a long lasting, strong, and natural feeling implant.

Traditional knee implants have an unnatural, hinge-like motion that puts increased strain on the muscles and ligaments supporting the knee. This can lead to increased joint pain, muscle fatigue and an unnatural feeling when walking or bending the knee. The Oxidized Zirconium Ceramic Surface, on the other hand, is the only knee implant designed to reproduce the original motion of the human knee. The Oxidized Zirconium Ceramic Surface Implant accomplishes this by reproducing the stability provided by the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) and posterior cruciate ligament (PCL), which are crucial to maintaining stability of the knee joint.

The Oxidized Zirconium Ceramic Surface Total Knee Replacement System utilizes a material called oxinium, that allows for an incredibly strong and long lasting implant. The unique design also allows the knee to move more naturally.

Another key benefit of the Journey Oxidized Zirconium Ceramic Surface is that it can be implanted using minimally invasive surgical techniques.  Minimally invasive surgical techniques allow for less cutting of tissue and a smaller incision.  The result is less pain and a faster recovery time versus a larger incision.  Dr. Ferro is part of a select group of surgeons in the country trained in the minimally invasive Oxidized Zirconium Ceramic Surface Implant.  Contact our office to find out if you may be a candidate.
