The Vanguard® XP knee replacement system is a cutting-edge procedure that retains both of the major ligaments of the knee, the posterior cruciate and the anterior cruciate. Posterior cruciate retaining knee replacement has been available for many years, but the procedure requires removing the anterior cruciate ligament. By retaining both the PCL and ACL, the Vanguard® XP makes everyday motions like walking, running, going up stairs or squatting feel more natural and ensuring a more complete recovery.
