As a resident, Dr. Charles Townley first sketched his ideas of a total knee replacement in the early 1940s. 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 that preserve the ACL and PCL have a more “natural” feel than those that sacrifice the ligaments.
• Preservation of all ligaments
• Preservation of the normal polycentric joint motion
• Requires minimal bone resection
• Restores anatomic function
