Although Total Knee Replacement for osteoarthritis is usually a wonderfully successful, life changing procedure, there are some common postoperative problems that affect patients.
One such problem is postoperative patello femoral pain - and this can blight an otherwise successful procedure
On this evening Clare Robertson and Adrian Fairbank will be looking at patella ‘friendly’ knee replacements, custom designs and patient specific implants and strategies for managing postoperative patella femoral pain
The evening will offer you the opportunity to have an interactive small group CPD event that will bring immediate advantages in managing this particular problem
