London Total Knee Replacement for Increased Activity: TWIS TKR Surgery Update

MSK Doctors, a private hospital that offers advanced surgical procedures, has updated its Total Knee Replacement (TKR) options to include the innovative TWIS TKR technique, which uses unique AI analysis to provide a more natural-feeling and responsive knee joint.

MSK Doctors in London have partnered with MAI Motion to provide their patients with highly customised knee prosthetics, using an advanced technique that is not available at most clinics. Known as Turn With Intelligent Stability - Total Knee Replacement, or TWIS-TKR, this new surgical procedure is known for providing a more natural-feeling knee joint.

While total knee replacement surgery is well-established, this new technique uses advanced AI analysis tools to enhance the surgical planning, and to provide every patient with a custom rotational alignment that was not possible with traditional techniques. In patient reported outcomes, TWIS-TKR is reported to feel more stable and natural, with less post-operative discomfort.

This new technique is available to all patients, though they should be aware that it may require one or several additional clinical visits to collect the required AI analysis. During this analysis, patients will be asked to move normally as they would in their daily lives, while being assessed by a custom-designed AI tool that records their personal kinematics.

By analysing how each patient moves through a variety of standard actions, such as walking, climbing or descending stairs, standing, and sitting, the surgical team can determine the optimal alignment for each patient’s new prosthetic. This advanced customisation can help individuals to adapt more naturally to all planes of movement, with additional flexibility in all three dimensions.

In clinical trials, the TWIS-TKR technique showed three main benefits, aside from patient reported outcomes. Patients with an AI-optimised prosthetic alignment showed improvements in joint mobility and stability, as well as recovery, in terms of the length of time required to return to daily activities.

An MSK Doctors spokesperson explained, “Clinical studies focusing on TWIS-TKR have reported significantly better functional outcomes. This includes improved range of motion, enhanced joint stability, and a more natural knee movement, closely mimicking the kinematics of a healthy knee.”

When compared to traditional techniques, TWIS-TKR has also been shown to reduce the risk of potential complications and secondary surgeries. Specialists believe this could be due, in part, to a decrease in wear and tear on the prosthetics, because of the improved stability and more equal stress loading of the knee joint.
