Matthew Levy, MD, performed knee replacement surgery using the ConforMIS iTotal implant, Cleveland Jewish News reports.

Here are three things to know:

1. Dr. Levy is a board-certified attending orthopedic surgeon at Cleveland-based Vincent Charity Medical Center.

2. He is one of the first surgeons in northeast Ohio to use the patient-specific iTotal knee implants.

3. ConforMIS uses the patient's CT scans to create the customized implant.

"As our industry embraces the technology out there, it is inevitable that there will be advances with computer technology and 3D printing," Dr. Levy told Cleveland Jewish News.
