An artificial knee joint is usually implanted because the joint cartilage is worn. This may be due to advanced age, to a misalignment of the legs (bow legs or knock knees) that in the long run causes an imbalanced load distribution, or to injuries.

Depending on the type of disorder, the activity level of the patient and the bone quality, the most suitable implant model is selected and fixated in the bone.
