Wondering if you’re a candidate for arthrosurface implants? A primary factor in your eligibility is whether or not your problem is limited to a specific area in your joint which can be determined by an X-ray. Even if this is the case, some patients would not be eligible for this procedure, including:
– Patients who have a bone infection
– Patients who have a sensitivity/allergy to materials in bone cements/orthopedic prosthetics
– Patients who have infections in other areas of their body that could spread to the implant site
This is not the full list of factors or conditions that could affect your eligibility. As with any other surgery, you will need to be in good general health. The fastest way to determine if you are a candidate for minimally invasive bone resurfacing is to schedule a consultation with our surgeon.
