Top 5 Trends in Total Joints

1. Personalized Implant Design: With advancements in technology, implant manufacturers are now able to create customized implants based on the specific needs of the patient. This allows for improved fit and function and can lead to better outcomes.

2. Biologics: The use of biologic materials, such as growth factors and stem cells, is becoming more common in the total joint implant industry. These materials can promote healing and reduce the risk of implant failure.

3. Minimally Invasive Surgery: Minimally invasive surgery techniques are becoming increasingly popular as they can lead to faster recovery times and fewer complications. This trend is driving the development of smaller, more flexible implant designs.

4. Robotic-Assisted Surgery: The use of robotics in total joint replacement surgery is becoming more common. Robotics can improve the accuracy and precision of the surgery and can help reduce the risk of complications.

5. Patient-Specific Instrumentation: Patient-specific instrumentation (PSI) is a technology that allows for the manufacture of surgical tools that are tailored to the specific anatomy of the patient. This can improve the accuracy and precision of the surgery and can lead to better outcomes.
