Robotic Total Knee Replacement (TKR) Advantages

Personalised Pre-Operative Plan

  • 3D virtual model of patient’s knee
  • Customised plan catering to individual patient pathology
  • Accurate Sizing of femur & tibia

Dynamic Joint Balancing

  • Implants moved in 6 degrees of freedom to achieve balance
  • Perfect Balance allows seamless movement in flexion/extension
  • Reduction in requirement of soft tissues release

Bone Preparation

  • 100% precise bone cuts
  • Haptic boundary guidance preventing soft tissue injury
  • Bone conserving surgery

Robotic Total Hip Replacement (THR) Advantages


Version & Inclination

  • Accurate sizing of the cup
  • Achieving the correct inclination and version
  • This prevents hip dislocation

Limb length and equalisation

  • Accurate sizing of the stem
  • Precise matching of the length and offset
  • This prevents leg length discrepancy

Associated Spine issues

  • Virtual Range of Motion
  • Accounts for spine and pelvis deformities
  • Simulates impingement of the implants

Not all robots are created equal While most are good...
some are truly unique!
