Deuce Knee System

Deuce Knee System
The Journey Deuce knee spares bone on the femur (thigh bone) and the tibia (shinbone). In addition, The Journey Deuce spares the stabilizing anterior and posterior cruciate ligaments (ACL and PCL).

The Deuce Knee System is a revolutionary resurfacing procedure that spares many people with Osteoarthritis from having to receive a total knee replacement. The knee is comprised of three compartments: the medial (inside), the lateral (outside), and the patellofemoral (middle). Osteoarthritis can afflict one, two, or all three of these compartments, making simple activities painful. Traditionally, if just two of these compartments had signs of osteoarthritis, the patient would undergo total knee replacement surgery.

With the Journey Deuce, however, surgeons now have the opportunity to treat the reported seventy percent of patients who only have osteoarthritis in two of the three compartments of the knee with an implant other than a total knee replacement. The Journey Deuce resurfaces the medial and patellofemoral compartments with a curved metal implant that moves against a thin plastic and metal insert on the tibia, or shinbone.  More importantly, since the implant does not span the entire width of the knee, the stabilizing anterior and posterior cruciate ligaments (ACL and PCL) are spared, creating the most natural feeling knee replacement implant available in the world.

Deuce Knee System
The result is the most natural feeling knee replacement implant available in the world with the added bonus of a quicker recovery time.

Also, since the Journey Deuce spares bone on the femur (thigh bone) and the tibia (shinbone), young, active patients now have an option for earlier treatment of their osteoarthritis pain. Typically, surgeons try to delay total knee replacement for their younger patients, because a potential revision procedure later in life can take a toll on physical activities before the patient is willing to give them up.  The Deuce offers patients the ability to maintain their physical activities while delaying total knee replacement for many more active years.

Both younger and older patients with 2 compartment knee osteoarthritis are excellent candidates for the Deuce implant.  For younger patients, the Deuce promises preservation of healthy bone and cartilage in the knee, reduced post-operative pain and a faster return to physical activity.  For older patients, the Deuce offers a less invasive alternative to the traumatic process of total knee replacement.
