FEATURED SURGERY: Cementless Total Knee Arthroplasty
In a pre-recorded surgery shown to attendees at the Winter Hip & Knee Course, R. Michael Meneghini, MD, from IU Health Saxony Hospital in Fishers, Indiana, performs a cementless total knee arthroplasty in an active, 58-year-old female patient. Between 20% and 30% of Dr. Meneghini’s patients are candidates for cementless TKA, which he said registry data and the literature support as a viable option for younger patients with good bone quality who need a long-lasting implant.
Dr. Meneghini was joined on the podium at the Winter Hip & Knee Course by a panel of surgeons who discussed the surgery and shared their experiences with cementless TKA. The panel included:
- James A. Browne, MD, as moderator
- Gregory G. Polkowski II, MD
- Scott M. Sporer, MD, MS
- Michael J. Taunton, MD
- Timothy J. Williams, MD
