Have you ever wondered why joint replacements don't last forever? This talk will explore the limitations of the current replacement designs and explain how close we are to regrowing a joint surface after it has been damaged, while outlining the technical demands these new technologies bring. No biological knowledge required.
Optional factory tour beforehand from 4.00pm.
