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.”
