It may also be performed for other knee diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis and psoriatic arthritis. Improving Accuracy in Knee Arthroplasty discusses new technology allowing the design of implants to be adapted for individual patients.

Beginning with an introduction to knee alignment and misalignment, the following sections examine anatomical landmarks in the normal and arthritic knee, instruments, navigation in knee arthroplasty, robotics and soft tissue guided surgery.
