Progress on my knee on 11-6-07, 18 weeks after the 6-20-07 knee replacement surgery. I still have inflammation and significant pain and discomfort, requiring treatment (ice, Ibuprofen, Tramadol...) and limiting my mobility to not-too-strenuous activities. History at


Smith-Nephew's new Deuce replacement knee JOURNEY* DEUCE* Bi-Compartmental Knee System - The innovative JOURNEY* DEUCE* Bi-Compartmental Knee System is a revolutionary concept where the medial tibiofemoral compartment and patellofemoral compartment are replaced with a single femoral component. The JOURNEY DEUCE System is the first and only knee system to successfully retain ACL and PCL function, allowing more normal kinematics and proprioception throughout the range of motion. The JOURNEY DEUCE Bi-Compartmental Knee System accommodates deep flexion, enables normal tibiofemoral axial rotation and provides patellar tracking throughout the entire range of flexion while retaining the healthy lateral tibiofemoral compartment.
