If you think the Oxford® Partial Knee sounds good, wait until you hear this. Every Oxford® knee is now available with an added bonus: personalized implant positioning. We call it the Signature™** system, and it's the knee replacement technique that's based on your specific anatomy. Using MRI technology and patient-matched guides, the system helps surgeons plan for the alignment of your Oxford® Partial Knee. It's the personalized approach that's just for you, from Biomet. Instead of relying on two-dimensional x-rays to plan your surgery, the Signature™ system uses an MRI of your knee in conjunction with computer software to create a 3-D image of your unique knee joint.
