A surgically implantable finger joint prothesis designed as a bifurcated or forked joint, wherein both fork legs of a fork of one joint component possess a respective opening widening towards the inside and the second joint component rotatably mounted at the fork is provided with two conical journals or pivot pins fitting into the openings. The fork legs are formed of such an elastic material, typically plastic, that in the presence of an overload they deviate axially and enable the journals to depart from the openings.
