“Just thought I would let you know that I had a very successful weeks skiing in Verbier and got back last weekend. Weather fantastic and knee held up very well. Many, many thanks.”
Technology plays a significant part in knee surgery whether in diagnosing the cause of the knee pain or the knee surgery itself. Neil Bradbury is a pioneer in knee surgery working with some of the most technologically advanced companies in the world to develop new techniques and innovative ways of working. Rapid diagnosis together with the best treatment for you will aid your recovery.
Mako robotic-arm assisted technology
Designed by Stryker, one of the world’s leading medical technology companies, Mako robotic-assisted technology provides patients with a more predictable surgical experience.
The treatment begins with a CT scan of your joint which is used to generate a 3D model. The Mako technology then uses the virtual 3D model to create a personalised surgical plan based on your anatomy.
The robotic-arm doesn’t perform surgery, nor can it make decisions on its own or move without the surgeon guiding it. Mako technology assists the surgeon during your joint replacement by guiding the surgery, within a pre-defined area, whilst allowing the surgeon to optimise implant alignment. This results in less than 1mm precision accuracy in the placement and alignment of your hip or knee implant.
Just over 500 Stryker Mako robots exist globally, over 50 of these are now placed in Europe but the vast majority are in America. Neil Bradbury has access to this pioneering technology both in London and Bath.
