  Purpose

The purpose of this study is to compare the the Nexgen knee replacement system using cementless fixation with the same system using cemented fixation. At minimum 2-year follow-up, the hypothesis is that NexGen total knee arthroplasties using cementless and cemented fixation will demonstrate no differences in clinical outcome based on Oxford and Knee Society scores, patient-assessed visual analog pain, clinical complications, radiographic fixation and implant survivorship.
