How are joint replacement implants held in the bone?


Knee implants are made of metal and plastic. The two commonly used fasteners for knee implants are cemented and cementless.

Cemented technique attaches to the bone with surgical cement. Cementless Technique allows the bone to unite with a porous surface onto which the bones natural growth attaches to the implant. Occasionally, a combination of the two is used during knee replacement surgery.
