Webinar: Are your cementing decisions affecting your outcomes?

Please enjoy watching the webinar led by Drs. Steven Haas and Matthew Squire for a discussion on the impact of cement choice and cementing technique in ensuring good outcomes for your patients undergoing total knee arthroplasty (TKA).

Over the course of an hour, Drs. Haas and Squire have covered the pathophysiology of aseptic loosening in TKA and how properties of cement and the technique with which cement is applied can impact survivorship.
