You want a knee that feels normal after knee replacement surgery. That’s why Smith+Nephew spent years developing the JOURNEY II Total Knee System. Designed to offer a smoother recovery, improved function and higher patient satisfaction.



Your implant should stand up to the daily wear-and-tear your active life demands. After more than a decade of work, we created our exclusive OXINIUM Oxidized Zirconium metal alloy. We then used this unique metal in our total knee implants.


Robotics-assisted surgery using the CORI Surgical System helps your surgeon take all the measurements and make all the calculations necessary to plan your specific surgery in a virtual, 3D environment – before any bone is cut. The system then helps your surgeon perform your surgery using that same plan.
