Yesterday, Mr Andrew Carrothers reached a personal milestone in completing his 100th Mako robotic assisted surgery procedure at Nuffield Health Cambridge, with the help of his team.
Unicompartmental knee arthroplasty – also called partial knee replacement or minimally invasive partial knee replacement – is a surgical procedure used to treat isolated areas of severe knee arthritis.
Every person’s anatomy is unique. When it comes to hip and knee replacement surgery, using Mako robotic arm assisted technology gives the orthopaedic surgeon more information about your anatomy which means they can very accurately plan your surgery and therefore cut away less of your bone and damage less of your other soft tissues.
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.
An innovative robotic arm called Mako is revolutionising total hip replacement surgery, leading to reduced pain and likely long-term better outcomes for patients.
Andrew Carrothers headed up the team at Nuffield Cambridge yesterday to successfully complete the 100th MAKO case! This is a great milestone showing that robotic-assisted surgery is taking orthopaedics to the next level in terms of accuracy and success rates.
We have smartphones, smart watches, smart TVs… Now, the next innovation that could transform people’s lives is the smart knee implant.
A robot called MAKO is helping orthopaedic surgeons to perform personalised joint replacement surgery, achieving better results and faster recovery rates than ever before.
Robotic knee and hip replacement surgery – using a state of the art robotic arm called MAKO – has been hailed as a new era in orthopaedic surgery. Surgeons talk about improved clinical outcomes due to the fact that the robot can assist with increased accuracy of standard implant positioning and exact achievement of the…
