Have knee pain?

One of the most common causes of chronic knee pain is arthritis, particularly osteoarthritis. Osteoarthritis can cause gradual pain, and may result in joint stiffness or swelling, especially with activity.

When nonsurgical treatment options are no longer effective, you may be a candidate for a knee replacement surgery. Knee replacement surgery removes damaged or diseased parts of a knee joint and replaces them with new, synthetic parts.

How does Lantern work?

Lantern is a medical device that allows surgeons to tailor each procedure to your unique anatomy. Lantern uses the same kind of sensor technology used in your smartphone. Think of it as “GPS for surgery,” designed to help surgeons make real-time, data-driven decisions to achieve their goals for your procedure.
