Preview

The design of the surface replacement arthroplasty has evolved over the past 20 years. From cemented prostheses such as the SCAN, to cementless prostheses such as the Copeland, the basic concept and design of the surface replacement favouring maximal bone preservation has remained constant.

Indications and surgical technique have been refined over this period, the latest modification being the use of computer-assisted navigation to optimise the size and position the implant in situ.

Surface replacement prosthesis has demonstrated clinical results at least equal to those of conventional stemmed prostheses.
