Knee Replacement - Golden Steps
Focus on Rapid Recovery
The medial-pivot designed to allow normal motion and natural function by replicating the native structure of the knee and providing a highly-conforming surface on the medial side.
GoldenSteps has been shown in simulated clinical testing to reduce the release of these metal ions, and builds upon the same medial-pivot legacy of 95% patient satisfaction with 98.8% survivorship at 17 years.
Full Function Faster
The peri-operative MSK Doctors protocols optimize the patient’s nutritional state, exclude function disturbing side effects and minimize pain. This concept has been designed by using the latest clinical evidence.

The Evolution® medial-pivot knee system enhances quadriceps efficiency and reduces the quadriceps avoidance found in traditional knee replacements. By enhancing quadriceps efficiency, the patient can have increased proprioception and a more normal feeling knee.
The MicroPort orthopedics Advance® medial-pivot knee system was launched in 1998, making it the first medial-pivot knee system available on the market. A culmination of years of research and design by Wright Medical and Dr. J. David Blaha resulted in a truly unique knee replacement design. With over 20 years of documented usage, MicroPort Orthopedics line of Medial-Pivot products have been used in over 600,000 cases in 70 countries worldwide. Patient reported satisfaction with a Medial-Pivot prosthesis is 95%, while the Medial-Pivot design has achieved outstanding clinical success worldwide, with documented 98.8% survivorship at 17 years.2
