Knee Care Expertise

Dr. Biggs has successfully performed thousands of knee replacements and is proud to offer his expertise to the residents of greater Naples, FL. He has helped many patients overcome knee pain using minimally invasive and advanced knee replacement techniques and technology.

Dr. Biggs understands that when it comes to joint replacement, no two patients are the same.  That’s why he uses ConforMIS knee implants. ConforMIS implants allow surgeons to create a knee implant that is specially designed for each patient, based on their own CT scan. Customized implants from ConforMIS can reduce surgery and recovery times and provide patients with a better fitting knee.
