Robotic Orthopaedic Centre in Cambridge

We're proud to be the only hospital in Cambridge to offer robotic-arm assisted surgery for a range of orthopaedic treatments including Total Hip and Knee Replacement and Partial Knee Replacement.

Robotic-arm assisted surgery provides patients with a personalised surgical plan for joint replacement surgery. The state-of-the-art Mako™ robotic arm system works alongside the surgeon from the pre-surgery planning stage through to assisting in the surgery itself in order to improve the accuracy and precision of the procedure. Before surgery, a personalised 3D model is created based on the patient’s own CT scan, allowing the exact size and orientation of the hip or knee implant to be planned. During the operation, the robot arm guides the surgeon, following the customised pre-surgery plan, reducing the risk of surgical errors in bone preparation and placement of the implants.

Higher accuracy means the replacement fits as well as it possibly can and ensures the joint functions as normally as possible after surgery. It's been shown to result in a shorter hospital stay2, quicker recovery2 and higher satisfaction3. There's also strong evidence of decreased pain4 following surgery.

Robotic-arm assisted surgery is available with: Mr Andrew CarrothersMr Graham Keene, Mr Christopher Gooding, Mr Stephen McDonnell and Mr Joel Melton, Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeons.

At Nuffield Health Cambridge Hospital our leading joint surgeons are able to utilise the very latest medical facilities and diagnostic equipment to ensure you receive first-class orthopaedic care. Our consultants have built a robust reputation in Cambridgeshire for their consistently excellent surgical outcomes and impressive joint repair.
