Knee replacement surgery has undergone remarkable advancements in recent years, with technology playing a pivotal role in enhancing precision and outcomes. One groundbreaking development is the integration of robotic arm assistance in knee replacement surgeries.

This innovative approach combines the skill of experienced surgeons with the precision of robotic technology, offering numerous benefits to patients.

Kingsbridge North West is now able to offer robotic-assisted knee replacement surgery, the first of its kind in Northern Ireland.

Mr Danny Acton, Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon at Kingsbridge North West

Robotic arm-assisted knee replacement surgery involves the use of a sophisticated robotic system to aid surgeons in performing the procedure with unprecedented accuracy. The system includes a robotic arm, a computer console, and specialised software. Before the surgery, the patient undergoes a detailed preoperative planning process, where a three-dimensional model of the knee is created based on imaging studies.

During the surgery, the surgeon guides the robotic arm using the console, which translates their movements into highly precise actions. The robotic arm assists in tasks such as bone preparation, implant positioning, and soft tissue balancing. Real-time feedback allows the surgeon to make adjustments and ensures optimal alignment and placement of the implants.

Key Features and Advantages:

  1. Precision and Accuracy: Robotic arm assistance enables sub-millimeter precision, surpassing the capabilities of traditional manual techniques. This precision helps in achieving optimal alignment and balance, which are important for the long term success of the knee replacement.
  2. Customisation: The preoperative planning process allows for a personalised approach to each patient's anatomy. The surgeon can tailor the procedure based on the individual's unique knee structure, optimizing implant placement and alignment.
  3. Minimally Invasive: Robotic arm-assisted surgery often allows for smaller incisions compared to traditional methods. This can result in less tissue damage, reduced blood loss, and a faster recovery time for the patient.
  4. Real-time Feedback: The system provides real-time information to the surgeon, offering insights into the joint's biomechanics and helping make immediate adjustments during the surgery. This capability enhances decision-making and improves overall surgical outcomes.
  5. Improved Patient Outcomes: Studies have shown that robotic arm-assisted knee replacement surgery can lead to better functional outcomes, increased patient satisfaction, and a lower risk of complications compared to traditional procedures.

How does Robotic Arm-Assisted Knee Replacement Surgery work?

Mako® is a robotic arm that works in tandem with your surgeon, combining innovative technology with the skills and expertise of your consultant.

Before the surgery, you will receive a CT scan of the joint which will take place at Kingsbridge Diagnostic & Treatment Centre in Belfast. The CT scan builds a customised 3D digital model of your knee to determine the right size and shape of implant for you. A personalised preoperative plan will then be discussed with you.

During the surgery your knee will be registered with the 3D model and the surgeon will be asked to take a series of bone points with a probe which the surgeon will see live on screen verifying that the registered CT scan and your knee match.

The surgeon then guides the robotic-arm to remove the diseased bone with more precision and accuracy.

To help ensure correct placement and alignment, the robotic-arm guides the implant at the desired angle defined in the preoperative plan.

Assessment of the movement and tension of your new joint follows implant insertion.

Where can I have Robotic-Assisted Knee Replacement Surgery?

Robotic Assisted Knee Replacement Surgery is currently only available within Kingsbridge North West, however the CT scan prior to the surgery takes place at Kingsbridge Diagnostic and Treatment Centre in Belfast.

Robotic arm-assisted knee replacement surgery represents a significant leap forward in the field of orthopedics. The marriage of surgical expertise with cutting-edge technology deliveres significant improvement in the precision and outcomes of knee replacement procedures.

Patient Testimonials

"I am extremely happy with the treatment, and with the standard of care I have received. There is no doubt as to whether this treatment is highly effective. I have had several cosmetic surgeries (although not on my face) but can say in comparing the results of the Spring Thread procedure with other less invasive treatments, the results are more in keeping with the surgical procedures I have had." Spring Thread Patient Review, Cosmetech at Kingsbridge Patient
"I had surgery here at the weekend and I can't recommend this place highly enough. They took great care of me and kept me at ease throughout my stay.

Mr McGinnity, Kingsbridge Patient

"Can’t praise Kingsbridge Private Hospital enough!! I had an operation a couple of weeks ago and I was so well looked after. My surgeon Mr Rashid was fantastic, and the nursing staff was also fabulous. I found they communicated very well to each other, so everyone knew when my meds were due, my allergies etc. They were so kind, so lovely, constantly checked to see how I was i.e. my temperature etc. The food was fabulous and the catering staff very helpful having had an operation were very happy to accommodate ...

Everyone was excellent, and I mean excellent, i don't normally write congratulatory e-mails so this is high praise in my view.

All came together to form a great impression of the establishment." Jason Carpal Tunnel Surgery, Kingsbridge Patient
