Technological innovations are transforming orthopaedics. Orthobiology, favouring the use of new non-invasive treatments such as growth factors or multipotent cells, increasingly constitutes a real hope in arthrosis damage limitation, above all when these are used in the prevention stages. Surgery uses power assisted systems such as robots or computerised guides capable of transforming highly complex procedures into programmable and foreseeable action. Joint replacements will soon be made to measure for patients and the latter’s biomechanical properties. Lots of other even more futuristic technological innovations will reduce healing times and increase cure success rates.
