Finding the best knee replacement implant
Knee replacement surgery is an effective treatment for severe knee arthritis. During the procedure, an artificial knee made of metal and plastic is inserted into the knee joint.

There are many orthopedic manufacturing companies that produce different implants used in knee replacement surgery. Most of these companies make several different knee replacement prostheses. Is there a way to determine which knee replacement implant is best?
