  • Patent number: 5312216
    Abstract: The currently used method for the replacement of joints greatly limits how the joint can be used. This invention overcomes these limitations returning the joint to full normal use. This is accomplished by my development of a system of joints that stay intact up to just short of bone breaking. At this point it will pop out. It can then be reset simularly to resetting a normal joint. This invention also includes a system for total limb replacement including limited action joints. Also included are various clamps to assist the surgeon.
