The papers I read seem to indicate that a ceramic knee replacement such as Biolux delta will give me a better result that existing metal implants.

How do I find a surgeon that is using this material?

@Stuartbell The best approach is to find a surgeon that you feel you can work with and let that surgeon dictate the prosthesis based on your own medical situation. Surgeons will use the implant they are most familiar with given your lifestyle.

Here's an article from our Library Choosing a surgeon and a prosthesis .

Hello Stuart, welcome to BoneSmart. Well done for reading up and studying, this is a Big Thing you're thinking about. I would treat all results like this with extreme caution. I'd also suggest that it's the skill and experience of the surgeon that counts more than choice of prosthetic.

Good luck with your study and eventual KR.
