broadcast a LIVE surgical webcast featuring the Smith
& Nephew JOURNEY II Cruciate Retaining (CR) Knee System with VISIONAIRE
Patient Matched Technology. Orthopedic surgeons Mark F. Schinsky,

of St. Luke's Medical Center in Phoenix Ariz., will demonstrate and
discuss the benefits of the Smith & Nephew PHYSIOLOGICAL MATCHING™

The LIVE webcast will showcase the Smith & Nephew patient matched
VISIONAIRE. VISIONAIRE Technology provides surgeons a personalized plan
created for each patient's specific anatomy and designed with the
surgeon's specific inputs.
Viewers are invited to interact with the surgeons live by sending their

The JOURNEY II CR knee is the first PCL-sparing total knee replacement
designed to provide normal kinematics and increased patient satisfaction
through PHYSIOLOGICAL MATCHING Technology. This innovative approach to
implant development uses the company's LIFEMOD human simulation software
to analyze the bone, ligament and muscle forces that impact the knee and
account for those forces within the design of an implant intended to
help restore anatomic shapes and normal motion.
This is the second of a series of three live surgeries featuring JOURNEY
II BCS knee and JOURNEY II CR knee. A third surgery will feature JOURNEY
II BCS knee and highlight Smith & Nephew's special gap balancing tool.
