Area of Focus: Joint Replacement

This easily accessible digital resource provides an important overview of established and new procedures to treat the knee joint for cartilage damage ranging from focal defects to early arthritis.

The current population is increasingly active, both at the early and later stages in life. Biologic treatment options for young arthritic knees or patients with focal cartilage loss who want to maintain an active lifestyle is a topic of interest for every orthopaedic surgeon.

Follow along as leaders in the field of knee preservation explore new areas of research, technical advances, and current approaches for the spectrum of disorders, including rationale, treatment algorithms, and patient evaluation. Through an evidence-based review of current literature, augmented by surgical technique videos, you will learn:
•The importance of preoperative planning and assessing the joint condition to determine the extent of cartilage loss, alignment, and meniscal status.
•Indications for combined procedures during cartilage resurfacing, realignment, meniscal transplantation, and biologic enhancement (such as stem cells).
•Innovative methods of articular cartilage resurfacing including free cell methods, particulate cartilage fragments, osteoarticular autografts and allografts.
