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.

What is XLPE or highly cross-linked plastic?

As remarkable as OXINIUM Oxidized Zirconium is, it is the combination of the OXINIUM material on XLPE that makes VERILAST Technology. XLPE is created by altering chemical bonds in the polyethylene we use to create our plastic inserts. By doing so, we are able to create a tighter weave at the molecular level, thus reducing the amount of wear experienced when the metal component rubs against it. Perhaps the easiest way to think of it is like a fabric with a higher thread count.

Important safety notes

Knee replacement surgery is intended to relieve knee pain and improve knee functions. However, implants may not produce the same feel or function as your original knee. There are potential risks with knee replacement surgery such as loosening, fracture, dislocation, wear and infection that may result in the need for additional surgery. Longevity of implants depends on many factors, such as types of activities and weight. Do not perform high impact activities such as running and jumping unless your surgeon tells you the bone has healed and these activities are acceptable. Early device failure, breakage or loosening may occur if you do not follow your surgeon’s limitations on activity level. Early failure can happen if you do not guard your knee joint from overloading due to activity level, failure to control body weight or accidents such as falls. Talk to your doctor to determine what treatment may be best for you.

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.
