Dr. Michael Morwood Published in the Journal of Arthroplasty
Dr. Morwood was recently published in the Journal of Arthroplasty. Dr. Morwood, who specializes in knee replacements says, “One of the main causes of total knee replacement failure is micromotion of the implants. This study was performed to see if the addition of a short stem extension onto the tibial component in a total knee replacement limits the motion of the implant. We were able to show the addition of a short stem provides a significant reduction in micromotion during cyclic loading of a cementless tibial baseplate in a synthetic foam bone model, similar to a cemented implant. The findings of this study may help lower the rate of tibial component loosening in total knee replacement.”

Morwood Published in Injury: International Journal of the Care of the Injured
Our very own Dr. Morwood has been published in the journal, Injury.
Dr. Morwood recently wrote about treating tibial fractures around total knee replacements. Although they are rare, tibial fractures can cause some serious complications, but chances of successful healing can be improved with the techniques detailed in Dr. Morwood’s paper!

Morwood Published in The Journal of Orthopaedic Trauma
The Journal of Orthopaedic Trauma is a premier orthopaedic journal, and Dr. Morwood was recently published in it.
Dr. Morwood, who specializes in knee replacements, wrote about how implants can be used to treat difficult fractures at the bottom end of the tibia to allow for immediate weight-bearing. That means a much faster recovery time for patients!
