Orthopedic Surgeon, Dr. Michael Muncy is the first in Texas to use new technology to offer guided personalized total knee surgeries for patients in the DFW area.

Exactech GPS® Guided Personalized Surgery is the latest advancement in technology that provides surgeons with real-time visual guidance and alignment data in total knee surgery. Similar to a navigation device in your car, this advanced platform provides a visual map of the patient’s joint on a screen, allowing surgeons to easily make adjustments, use minimally invasive techniques, and perform implant alignment personalized to the patient’s needs.

“Having this technology at Medical City Las Colinas allows me to be much more precise when cutting on a patient's knee,” said Dr. Michael Muncy.

Exactech GPS combines surgeon expertise with an advanced computer system to perform the patient’s knee surgery with a goal of advanced accuracy and precision. Personalized for a patient’s unique bone structure and anatomy, Exactech GPS allows surgeons to decide where to remove bone and place the knee implant in the optimal position.

“This is a tremendous technological advantage of a standard total knee replacement which I have done for many years,” said Dr. Muncy.

Combined with Optetrak®, a knee system that has a proven lineage of excellent long-term clinical outcomes, surgeons are able to have the best of both worlds – a proven implant foundation1 with today’s most modern surgical technologies.
