Dr Klaassen joined other experts in preparing research entitled:  “Clinical Expectations for Cementless Partial Knee Replacements”

Abstract:  Partial knee arthroplasty has a long and successful clinical history in treating patients with unicompartmental osteoarthritis. Due to improvements in the reliability and repeatability of clinical results, as well as the continued growth of the outpatient surgery center, partial knees have made a resurgence.

Furthermore, with recent advances in materials, manufacturing, and technology innovation, cementless partial knees are expanding on the global market; and have been identified as a means for treating a younger, more active patient population. Although still relatively new to the US, cementless partial knees have been in clinical use in Europe for nearly 20 years. Over this period, a significant amount of clinical research has been conducted and as a user of cementless partial knees, it is particularly important to understand the similarities and differences between these and their cemented counterparts.
