BDAE Press Release: Evolution of Biomaterials in Joint Replacement Surgery

Engineers and surgeons have been busy refining the materials used to get the best mix of properties of strength, flexibility, low friction and wear rate as well address tissue compatibility and allergic reactions. Professor Patel Kuntal will talk about the development of the materials adopted and the advances that have been achieved.

This should be of personal interest to many as a good proportion of us will require hip or knee replacement as we age and would like to be subjected to the surgery just once and have no further problems! It is certainly an engineering challenge with very high loads and impacts to satisfy.

Professor Kuntal Patel is a leading consultant orthopaedic surgeon in Lancaster, Blackpool and Blackburn who holds a special interest in lower limb surgery. His areas of expertise include hip and knee replacement, knee arthroscopy, ACL reconstruction and arthritis of the knee and hip.
