As a resident, Dr. Charles Townley first sketched his ideas of a total knee replacement in the early 1940’s. The BioPro® TKO (Total Knee Original) knee replacement implant is the third generation of Dr. Townley’s original total knee replacement. It has been designed to provide anatomical articulating surfaces while preserving all of the stabilizing ligaments including the ACL (anterior cruciate ligament) and PCL (posterior cruciate ligament). Recent studies have shown that knee replacements which preserve the ACL and PCL have a more “natural” feel than those that sacrifice the ligaments..
