ICJR REWIND: Cementless TKA – an ICJR Featured Surgery

    In a pre-recorded surgery shown to attendees at ICJR’s 11th Annual 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.
