What is new in Knee Replacement
For a patient considering knee replacement surgery, there are new developments under study which can help enhance their quality of life. These include:
- Use of cementless parts that allow new bone to grow into a porous prosthesis and hold the parts in place, creating a biologic fixation
- Robotic assisted knee replacement
- Use of cryoneurolysis (Iovera) to proactively treat pain in the front of the knee before surgery.
- Outpatient rapid recovery programs.
