Extract

Advances in orthopaedic surgery have been based on biomechanical principles for years. Engineering advances in metallurgy, polymer science, ceramic technology, and manufacturing processes lead to improvements in the devices that orthopaedic surgeons use and thus to better performance in the fields of orthopaedics, especially arthroplasty, spine surgery, trauma, and arthroscopy.
