Research shows robotic-arm assisted total knee arthroplasty improves outcomes in patients compared to conventional procedures.

Research recently published in the prestigious Journal of Bone & Joint Surgery and completed at the University College London Hospital UK, highlighted that

  • Robotic-arm assisted TKA is associated with reduced postoperative pain and analgesia requirements compared with conventional jig-based TKA.
  • Robotic-arm assisted TKA is associated with improved early functional recovery compared with conventional jig-based TKA.
  • Robotic-arm assisted TKA is associated with reduced time to hospital discharge compared with conventional jig-based TKA.

Dr Brendan Klar and the team at CKC hope that Robotic-Assisted surgery will similarly provide better outcomes for our patients but only time will tell.
