David Clinton McNabb, MD of Raleigh Orthopaedic Clinic recently had an article accepted for publication in the April, 2017 issue of the Journal of Arthroplasty – peer-reviewed journal that brings together the clinical and scientific foundations for joint replacement.
The article, ” Femoral Implant Design Modification Decreases the Incidence of Patellar Crepitus in Total Knee Arthroplasty.,” describes how a newer implant design lowers the rate of complications of the knee cap (patella) as it articulates with the knee replacement.
