Over the years, we have received feedback from our patients about how Movement Orthopedics has helped them. We are proud to share some of these patient testimonials below.

The rationale behind the concept of PHYSIOLOGICAL MATCHING is simple: any change you make to the knee joint will ultimately impact the entire leg. Of course, as is so often the case, simple rarely means easy.

The primary hurdle to overcome in a knee replacement is the knee itself. Described as a hinge joint, the knee actually does much more than bend back and forth. In fact, every time your knee bends, forces in and around the knee cause it to move with a complex rotational motion that most of us never realize. However, when that motion is removed after knee replacement, the result can be disappointing.

Traditionally, most knee implants have attempted to replace the natural swing-and-rotate of the knee by building a simple pivot point into the implant (known as a rotating platform) or by using a slightly angled alignment of the implant during surgery. Unfortunately, both of these options can force the muscles and ligaments around the new joint to work harder and move in unfamiliar, stressful ways; resulting in pain, muscle fatigue and an unnatural feeling while walking or bending the knee.

The JOURNEY II implant was designed using Smith & Nephew’s proprietary LifeMOD human simulation software. This advanced software system allows engineers to examine in a virtual 3-D environment the exact internal shapes and angled forces that act on the knee throughout each phase of motion. As a result, the JOURNEY II implant has been designed to physiologically match how the hard structures of a normal knee joint move and rotate in an effort to maintain normal muscle activity and return the patient’s stride to it’s a natural rhythm.

Important safety note

Individual results of joint replacement vary. Implants are intended to relieve knee pain and improve function, but may not produce the same feel or function as your original knee. There are potential risks with knee replacement surgery such as loosening, wear and infection that may result in the need for additional surgery. Patients should not perform high impact activities such as running and jumping unless their surgeon tells them that the bone has healed and these activities are acceptable. Early device failure, breakage or loosening may occur if a surgeon’s limitations on activity level are not followed.

Patients Story

Loved by our Patients

Lauren Bowers Patients

I went in for a knee sports injury, and Dr. Jeffrey Carroll was beyond amazing. I’ve dislocated my knee in the past, and the service at a different place was nothing compared to here. I would recommend Movement Orthopedics 10/10 every time.”

Gina Bednarski Patients

I fell and ended up with a pilon fracture. Dr. Carroll did an amazing job with my surgery! I have been following up a lot with Jeff the NP, and I can't say enough good things about him. He's so sincere! The entire staff is so friendly and courteous.”

Angela Lucido Patients

“Dr. Benenati is a very good foot doctor. He is always very caring and careful when working on the feet, and he’s very personable. I’ve taken my mom to many other foot doctors before we met him. My brother, sister, and I all go to him now.

Eileen Patients

I took a family member to see Dr. Benenati. He is the best foot doctor that I have ever been to! Very personable and takes the time to explain everything and also to listen if you have any questions at all. All of his attention is focused on the patient.
