Hello @progolfer and welcome to Connect.
We have many members discussing knee replacements and the recovery afterwards, but if you don't mind sharing, are you wondering specifically wondering about the brand conformis?

It’s a new type of operation
Your knee joint is custom made
@progolfer, thank you. If you don't mind sharing a bit more, has this type of knee been recommended to you by your provider? I am not am medical professional, but did some research and could not find much on the conformis knees. I have not see anyone mention this new custom knee on Connect before, so I am curious to learn more. I underwent a total knee replacement in 2006, which seems like ancient history now in terms of medical advancements, but I do know what it is like to go through the procedure and recovery.
Yes this is relatively new to me
I had a partial knee replacement 6 years ago a struggled thru rehab
This is new to the game of knee replacement ,custom made for your new
I won’t try to explain,go to the Conformis knee replacement site. Google it
