Since the introduction of the first functional hip implants by Sir John Charnley in the 1960s, arthroplasty has evolved into one of the most successful surgeries of our time. Tremendous research effort has contributed, above all, to progress in material research, biomechanical, and technical understanding as well as to growing insight in biological processes in the cross-talk between implant and patient.
Nevertheless, we are still confronted with unsolved problems such as periprosthetic infections, approach-related damage of periarticular musculature, instability of artificial joints, neglect of spino-pelvic interplay by traditional systems, and the biological burden of foreign material debris.
This Special Issue will focus on recent innovations, which are promoting the field of hip and knee arthroplasty and are addressing these unsolved problems. The aim is to update the reader on different aspects of modern arthroplasty.

Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Journal of Clinical Medicine is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
