What makes us different?

Robotic-Assisted TKR

Dr Klar was the first surgeon globally to complete 350 Robotic-Assisted TKRs since its launch in Canberra in May 2019. This experience has seen surgeons from India, Japan, Perth, Sydney, Wagga, Bathurst and Adelaide visit him to learn about Robotic-Assisted TKR surgery. Dr Klar happily teaches other surgeons about this exciting cutting-edge technology. Many surgeons have done a few robotic knee replacements but very few have completed the number Dr Klar has completed.

Apple Watch App

Dr Klar is the first surgeon in Australia to launch this exciting collaboration bringing together Apple Watch and the orthopaedic industry.

Better Outcomes

Dr Klar is a high volume knee surgeon meaning he completes hundreds of total knee replacements TKR annually. It has been shown that high-volume surgeons have fewer complications than lower-volume surgeons. Data from the Australian Joint Replacement Registry 2019 shows Dr Klar outperforms most other surgeons in his TKR results. This means his patients get fewer complications than most other surgeons in Australia. Please see this link for further explanation.

Extensive Experience

Dr Brendan Klar has over 20 years of experience in various surgical fields and the last 12 years as a specialist lower-limb orthopaedic surgeon. In orthopaedic surgery, experience counts, and Dr Klar has performed thousands of emergency and elective operations over this timeframe.

Best TKR implants

Not all knee replacement implants are the same. Dr Klar knows this and believes the choice of implant is absolutely critical to the long-term outcome following knee replacement surgery. Dr Klar uses the implant system that has the lowest risk of needing any subsequent operations out of all the manufacturer’s in the market. This is based on AOANJRR published annually from the Australian Joint Registry. The above article shows the best performing implant. This is the implant that Dr Klar uses as it has the best performance of all TKR in the database with an unmatched/unsurpassed 1.7 % cumulative percentage risk of needing to be revised for any reason at 5 years after implantation. This makes the risk to his patients of needing a second procedure as low as it can be. Additionally, the new Vitamin E plastic available with this implant holds exciting promise for significant implant lifespan gains. This can only be good news for his knee replacement recipients. Learn about why Vitamin E plastic is better here.

Instructor-Dr

Dr Brendan Klar is expertly skilled in the advanced technology behind Robotic-Assisted TKRs and delivers training for other orthopaedic surgeons in this area. This depth of experience combined with his specialist understanding of knees, Dr Klar should be your first stop when it comes to TKRs.

Best Private Hospital

Dr Klar operates on all of his patients at the National Capital Private Hospital in Canberra. This facility has recently had around $150m spent across the campus. This is now, in Dr Klar’s opinion, the best private hospital in Canberra bar none. The ICU service and onsite medical care are superior, the onsite MRI and CT services are safer, and the hospital has become a robotic centre of excellence in the past 18 months. In the last 1000 TKRs Dr Klar has done at NCPH he has had no cases of infection. All good reasons to have your operation at NCPH.

Your Anaesthetist

Dr Klar realises how critical the anaesthetist is to your surgical experience and has put in place senior experienced anaesthetists for every surgical list he performs. Dr Klar has hand-picked his anaesthetists and has carefully chosen the best of the best. He believes in quality and has chosen these specialists based on their superior skills thus ensuring his patients get the best anaesthetic possible.

Specialisation

The Canberra Knee Clinic is unique in that it is the first and only orthopaedic practice in Canberra that focuses on knee surgery alone. By focusing on just surgery of the knee, we can deliver reliable results. We treat patients from the ACT and surrounding NSW region as well as further afield.

Personalised Care

When you engage Dr Klar to do your knee surgery he does all the surgery not his trainees as happens elsewhere. His patients benefit from this approach.

In-office MRI

Our on-site, in-office, same-day-service MRI unit, allows for rapid and accurate diagnosis of your problem. Our MRI machine is a first of its kind in Australia. We can maximise the convenience factor for our patients by providing an MRI of your knee while you wait in our office.
