The ATTUNE® Knee System has shown statistically significant improvements in patient recorded outcomes compared to certain leading brands.1
In a clinical study, physical therapists noted that ATTUNE® Knee patients had significantly greater range of motion compared to another leading knee replacement, both two and six weeks post-surgery.2

An Early Outcome Study of the ATTUNE® Knee System vs. the SIGMA® CR150 Knee System. DePuy Synthes Companies White Paper. DSUS/JRC/0814/0418 (1). In an IRB approved early outcomes study, physiotherapists collected data on 40 patients implanted with ATTUNE® Knees and 40 patients with SIGMA® CR150 knees. The results demonstrated that patients implanted with the ATTUNE Knee had statistically significant improvements in some early outcomes, other outcomes demonstrated a trend favoring the ATTUNE Knee, and some outcomes were equivalent.

William P. Barrett, M.D.– ATTUNE Knee Surgeon Design Team; Renton, Washington “The ATTUNE Knee System with its enhanced stability and range and motion allows patients to get up and around more quickly. In my experience, my patients are able to get back to work, get back to their activities more quickly than they would in the past.”
Ryan M. Nunley, M.D. – Clinical Investigator, St. Louis, Missouri “After doing the first couple of cases, my patients seemed to get out of the hospital faster, have less pain, and a faster recovery. When they came back to their visit at about the one month period, they had better range of motion. I decided that the ATTUNE Knee was the knee that I wanted to use.”
One year results from two worldwide studies showed improved patient reported outcomes with the ATTUNE Knee compared to other leading knee systems.1
Knee replacement surgery is a common and successful procedure. The performance of the ATTUNE Knee is in line with other knee systems.7
In a clinical study, physical therapists noted that ATTUNE Knee patients had significantly greater range of motion than other knee replacement patients, both at two and six weeks post surgery.8
These physical therapists also noted that ATTUNE Knee patients required significantly less time to meet the necessary criteria to leave the hospital.8
Every aspect of the ATTUNE Knee has been specially designed to work with the body for a full and natural range of motion while optimizing stability.
The ATTUNE Knee is comprised of several innovative, patented technologies to give you confidence from your very first step.
Smooth Motion and Stability: The patented ATTUNE GRADIUS® Curve
This helps provide you smooth motion and stability as you do everyday activities like walking or going up and down stairs.
Anatomic Movement: The GLIDERIGHT® Articulation
This innovation optimizes how your patella (knee cap) interacts with the rest of your knee to provide a smooth feeling in motion.
Pam, Retail Store Manager
My quality of life since the knee replacement has improved so much. It’s been like night and day. Now that I’ve had my knee replaced, I don’t even think about it when I wake up in the morning. I just get out of bed, make coffee, get the paper and don’t have to worry about the pain.”
Bob, Handball Player
“The quality of life has changed back to where I was probably in my mid-thirties, early-forties. I was able to do things without pain, I was able to go on walks, able to cut the grass, all the things that you can do when you have two good knees.”
Lani, Veterinarian and Equine Therapist
“My physical therapist was kind enough to tell me that in his twenty-plus years of doing physical therapy, he had never seen anybody that had responded, and was recovering, as fast as I was.”
Roger, Cyclist and Fisherman
“I was going up and down ladders without a problem, I was fishing without a problem. I enjoy taking my grandaughter out on the boat. My quality of life has changed a lot. One mistake I made, a big mistake, is that I should have gotten it done many years ago.”

Important Safety Information
As with any medical treatment, individual results may vary. The performance of knee replacements depends on your age, weight, activity level, and other factors. There are potential risks, and recovery takes time. People with conditions limiting rehabilitation should not have this surgery. Only an orthopaedic surgeon can determine if knee replacement is right for you.
