Circle Bath Hospital becomes the first hospital in the area to offer pioneering robotic arm assisted joint replacement surgery
Circle Bath Hospital has become the first hospital in Bath to implement the pioneering technology, Stryker Mako, a robotic-arm assisted joint replacement surgery. We have put ourselves at the forefront of innovative surgery by investing in new robotic-arm assisted total knee and total hip replacement technology.
Robotic-arm assisted surgery is a new approach to joint replacement that offers the potential for a higher level of patient-specific implant alignment and positioning. The technology allows surgeons to create a patient-specific 3D plan and perform joint replacement surgery using a surgeon controlled robotic-arm that helps the surgeon execute the procedure with a high degree of accuracy.
The tool aids precision surgery, helping reduce post-operative pain and speed up patient recovery time, making it the latest advancement in joint replacement surgery.
Mr Neil Bradbury, Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon at Circle Bath Hospital, said: “The Mako robotic-arm is transforming the way joint replacement surgeries are performed and we’re proud to be the first hospital in Bath to be using this technology and practicing some of the most advanced treatments available in medicine. Whether you’re someone who is being held back by a knee or hip injury and you want to return to a full and active life or you’re a sportsperson who wants to return to competition, we’re happy to have a chat to you about how the Stryker Mako robotic-arm assisted surgery can help.”
Claire Gurrie, Hospital Director at Circle Bath Hospital, said: “We’re really pleased to be able to introduce the Stryker Mako robotic-arm to our patients requiring total hip and total knee replacements. The benefits of the Mako robotic-arm mean that Circle Bath Hospital is able to offer state-of-the-art care to each patient through the entire process, allowing an improved experience for patients from pre-op to post-op recovery.”
