Abstract

Over the last three decades, there have been significant advancements in knee and hip replacement technology. The implants and the surgical technology we now have to aid in their implantation are advancing and improving functional outcomes and survivorship. Despite these advancements, there are still issues with patient satisfaction, functional limitations, and early revisions due to instability and aseptic loosening. This article reviews the state of current technology in hip and knee replacement implant design and surgical technique, and reviews some of the current implant designs and surgical technologies that may be able to solve some of the most common issues in the knee and hip replacement surgery.
