Joint replacement surgeries are a common treatment for diseased or damaged joints. The procedure typically involves the insertion of a metal stemmed component into the bone canal, either with or without bone cement, to achieve fixation to the host bone. Although this procedure has proven effective, implant loosening remains a relatively common complication, leading to pain and the eventual need for revision surgery.
