Abstract: As compulsory content for orthopedic graduate students, total knee arthroplasty (TKA) is characterized by requirements of surgical accuracy and so is difficult to train since there is limited opportunity for young surgical trainees especially design of surgical operation and long term training to get experience. Traditional teaching of TKA for graduates is embarrassed by these barriers. Recent years, new techniques such as robotic-arm assisted surgery and 3D-printing technology have been extensively used in clinical training. For example the hybrid model with combined surgical design in virtue of robotic system and vivid simulation produced by 3D-printing for training. This paper reviewed is current situation in this field and evaluated the feasibility in clinical application
