The UniSpacer is a small, metallic kidney-shaped insert that is intended to restore stability and normal alignment for patients whose arthritis is primarily located on the inside half of the knee. It also provides a smooth surface for the bones to glide over when cartilage has been worn away by arthritis.
The UniSpacer conforms to the natural bone structure and stays in place without bone cement or screws. Implantation of the UniSpacer does not requre bone cuts.
The UniSpacer comes in a wide range of sizes to conform as closely as possible to the weight and size of each patient.
