ICJR COLLECTIONS: Technology for Hip and Knee Arthroplasty

    Total hip arthroplasty (THA) and total knee arthroplasty (TKA) are 2 of the most successful – and most commonly performed – orthopaedic procedures, allowing surgeons to alleviate pain and restore joint function in patients with osteoarthritis and other degenerative conditions.

    But there’s still room for improvement, which may come from the use of advanced technologies designed to enhance the accuracy of implant positioning and the reproducibility of these procedures.

    In this article, we’ve collected resources from the ICJR archives that review the literature and offer practical applications for technologies for THA and TKA, including sensors, robotics, and computer navigation. These resources are from ICJR’s inaugural Emerging Technologies in Joint Replacement course, held last year in Nashville under the direction of Course Chairs Cory L. Calendine, MD, and Arthur L. Malkani, MD.
