January is a busy time for orthopaedic surgeons. Not only is there a higher risk of injury at this time of year due to icy weather conditions, but there is also the “New Year Resolutions factor”, which sees many people redoubling their efforts to get fit after the indulgences of the Festive season. Unfortunately, this…
Christmas can be stressful at the best of times but when you’re coping with the pain of arthritis on top of everything else, it can really put a dampener on the celebrations.
When your hip joint becomes severely damaged, either through a degenerative disease like osteoarthritis or due to injury, hip replacement surgery can offer you a new lease of life.
Choosing a knee implant is an important decision. The prosthesis will become a vital part of your anatomy, helping you to walk, sit, stand and move around. Not only that, but it will be with you for years to come – around 15+ is the usual lifespan for an artificial knee implant.
One of the first questions patients with arthritis ask about Mako robotic arm-assisted joint replacement surgery is “yes, but what difference will it make to me?” It’s a fair question. After all, state-of-the-art technology in the operating theatre may be exciting to an orthopaedic surgeon but why should patients care? To mark Arthritis Awareness Week…
Osteoarthritis is a painful degenerative condition that can affect the knee joints. In its early stages, the symptoms may be mild and can normally be managed without surgery. However, as the condition develops, symptoms worsen and more invasive treatment options may become necessary, including surgery.
A partial knee replacement is a surgical procedure to replace the damaged compartment of your knee with a prosthetic implant. A new system of robotic-arm technology is helping orthopaedic surgeons to perform this type of surgery with greater accuracy than ever before. We are one of a small group of orthopaedic surgeons to use the…
The Mako system supports orthopaedic surgeons to perform total knee replacements with greater accuracy than ever before, resulting in even better outcomes for patients.
A sprained ankle can be a painful and debilitating injury. Depending on the severity of the sprain, you may be unable to put weight on the affected ankle and it may feel weak and unstable. You may have swelling, bruising and redness around the injury.
An innovative robotic arm called Mako is revolutionising total hip replacement surgery, leading to reduced pain and likely long-term better outcomes for patients.
