The Duece Knee System is a resurfacing procedure that can be an alternative to total knee replacement for many patients with osteoarthritis. It’s designed to preserve healthy bone that is normally sacrificed during a traditional total knee replacement – speeding recovery and enhancing outcomes.
How Does the Deuce Knee System Work?
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. It spares the bone on the femur (thigh bone) and the tibia (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 also preserved.
