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.
