Surface technologies play an integral role in the success of joint replacement implants. Orthopedic device companies continue to meet this demand and are launching devices with new and improved coatings with greater biological acceptance. These materials and coatings range from high performing alternatives to CoCr Alloy to reducing bacterial attachment in knee and hip implants. In this session, orthopedic companies including Total Joint Orthopedics and Zimmer Biomet will discuss R&D efforts in implant coating and market forces driving new coatings and materials. Further, there will be valuable insights on testing and regulatory pathway from BioVera.
