The world of knee surgery has always been an interesting and exciting place, but right now even more. The increasing demand of patients for an active life at every stage of their life and their wish to obtain a forgotten joint after surgery creates new challenges. Publications in the last few years have shed light on some fascinating developments in our understanding of both fundamental principles of how natural joints work, and how artificial ones can help restore that natural function.
These new objectives set by our patients and our colleagues make us think about our best current practices. What to change, where to innovate, what to keep? Technological progress now allows us to aim higher than we ever could before, and the field of outcome metrics has advanced to let both patients and purchasers of healthcare understand better the value of different interventions.
