Robotic Orthopaedic Surgery in Glasgow
We're proud to be the first hospital in Scotland to offer a total knee replacement using robotic-arm assisted surgery. We also offer partial knee and total hip replacements.
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.
Current robot assisted orthopaedic procedures available at Nuffield Health Glasgow Hospital:
- Total Hip Replacement using Robotic-arm assisted technology
- Knee Replacement (total and partial) using Robotic-arm assisted technology
