ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – Orthopedic Surgeon Dr. Rick Lehman has all you need to know about biologic knee replacement and what makes it stand out versus a metal knee replacement.
The biologic knee resurfaces with cartilage instead of metal. The biologic knee will heal while a metal replacement will wear out like a tire.
Other issues that are ran into with a metal knee replacement are metal loosens over time and some people may be allergic to metal.
The procedure is beneficial for younger people and they can always revert back to a total knee if needed.
