Mayo Clinic physicians are continually trying to improve the surgical process and results of knee replacement. Mayo researchers have studied such topics as problems that can impair the stability of the artificial joint, factors that may increase the risk of joint infection and complications encountered during revision surgeries.

In addition, some orthopedic surgeons at Mayo Clinic are involved in artificial knee joint design in the laboratories for Biomechanics and Motion Analysis, where they evaluate longer lasting materials and designs to improve care and outcomes.
