1. A method of designing an orthopaedic implant, comprising the steps of:

  • (a) obtaining three dimensional data corresponding to a multi-piece existing or prototype orthopaedic implant;

    (b) obtaining three dimensional data sets for a first bone and a second bone cooperating to form a joint;

    (c) associating the three dimensional data corresponding to the multi-piece existing or prototype orthopaedic implant with a three dimensional data set for the first bone and the second bone to comprise a virtual joint replacement;

    (d) taking the virtual joint replacement through a virtual range of motion and recording kinematic data; and

    (e) responsive to the recorded kinematic data, modifying the existing or prototype orthopaedic implant.
