Surgical Pearls for Cementless Total Knee Arthroplasty

    Editor’s Note: Throughout January, we’re giving you a chance to get reacquainted with tips, tricks, and techniques from leading orthopaedic surgeons as we present the best of the best from our collection of surgery videos.

    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.

    Dr. Meneghini was joined on the podium by a panel of surgeons who discussed the surgery and shared their experiences with cementless TKA:

    • James A. Browne, MD, as moderator
    • Gregory G. Polkowski II, MD
    • Scott M. Sporer, MD, MS
    • Michael J. Taunton, MD
    • Timothy J. Williams, MD
