Endo Model Rotational and Hinge Knee Prosthesis

LINK® Endo-Model®

Rotational and hinge knee prosthesis for primary and revision surgery

Used as primary prosthesis or as revision treatment, as a rotational or hinge knee, with the Endo-Model® rotational knee prosthesis you have many options.

Because of its dimensions the Endo-Model® knee prosthesis is considered one of the knee joints requiring very little bone resection and therefore offers the highest possible sparing of bone substance in cases of primary intervention and revision. In addition to high primary stability this system features anchorage-preserving natural movement sequences.

Since 1979, it has proven itself the LINK success model for over 30 years.
