Genou FHK

Total knee prosthesis

 
 
 

FHK was developed by leveraging the accumulated knowledge and know-how of GECO (French study group for bone surgery) members specialised in knee surgery.

Relevant data were recorded, collated and analysed by CEAH (André Hermann Evaluation Centre), which then conveyed all the required statistics and medical information.

FHK was born of considerable experience in knee arthroplasty. Key decisions made in terms of materials, implant design, surgical protocol and instrumentation give it a high likelihood of long-term success.

The FHK is designed and manufactured by FH ORTHOPEDICS. In this total knee replacement product line, each element contributes to meeting the surgeon’s need for safety and the patient’s need for optimal, long-lasting medical care.
