This presentation shows my invention of the "Genucup"  ( patent pending) . It will be the most minmalistic intervention without any bone resection,- as currrently done,-  for the treatment of osteoarthritis. After individual modelling of the knee by 3 D MRI the Genucup will be personalized for each patient and constructed by 3 D printing. The material will be the same as used over long time for hip and knee joint replacment.

The ideal patient is a young sportmen with initial knee joint problems to potect hie knee for further damage and an older patient who will not tolerate long interventions with bone resection with either  unicodylar or complete knee implant. 

In an ideal situation the patient walks next day out of clinic after this minmal intervention.
