Knee Implants Market – Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast to 2025

Knee implantation is a surgical process in which the damaged bone and cartilage of knee are replaced and removed with metal components that recreate the surface of the joint. The knee implant components are made of ceramic materials, metal alloys, or strong plastic parts. The knee implant surgery is also known as arthroplasty. There are four main types of arthroplasty, namely kneecap replacement, partial knee replacement, complex knee replacement, and total knee replacement.

Total knee replacement involves the replacement of the surface of the thigh bone and the shin connected to the knee. Partial knee replacement or uni-compartmental knee replacement, can be performed through a small cut were one side of the knee is affected. Various types of fixation are used in knee implantation to connect knee implants to the bone, these include hybrid fixation, cementless fixation and cemented fixation. In cemented fixation the implants are held in place with a fast curing bone cement such as polymethylmethacrylate. Where in cementless fixation the implants are press-fit on to the bone so as to augment new bone growth.
