The above-discussed and other problems and deficiencies of the prior art are overcome or alleviated by the improved bone connective prosthesis and method of forming the same of the present invention, comprising the addition of at least one biocompatible metal coupling agent to a prosthetic element, and then adding the biocompatible copolymerizer 2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate (“HEMA”) to the PMMA film and/or cement in an amount effective to enhance the cohesion between the prosthetic and the bone cement. In general, a PMMA/HEMA film is applied to the prosthetic element in the presence of a silane coupling agent by dipping, painting, spraying, etc.
