The Circle Bath Hospital has become the first hospital in the area to offer Stryker Mako, the pioneering robotic-arm assisted surgery for knee and hip replacements.
The addition of the latest technology has been described as ‘the gold standard’ of hip and knee joint replacement.
With the use of Stryker Mako robotic-arm assisted surgery, Circle Bath is adopting a new and innovative approach to joint replacements that offers a higher level of alignment and positioning during surgery, resulting in speedier recovery and reduced post-operative pain.
By using this latest advancement in surgical technology, patients can get back to their active lifestyle quicker, whether it be walking the dog or returning to the golf course.
Neil Bradbury, Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon, at the hospital, said: “The Mako robotic-arm is transforming the way joint replacement surgeries are performed and we’re proud to be the first hospital in Bath to be using this technology and practicing some of the most advanced treatments available in medicine.
“If you’re someone who is being held back by a knee or hip injury and you want to return to a full and active life, we’re happy to have a chat to you about how the Stryker Mako robotic-arm assisted surgery can help.”
Claire Gurrie, Hospital Director, added: “We’re really pleased to be able to introduce the Stryker Mako robotic-arm to our patients requiring total hip and total knee replacements.
“The benefits of the Mako robotic-arm mean that Circle Bath Hospital is able to offer state-of-the-art care to each patient through the entire process, allowing an improved experience for patients from pre-op to post-op recovery.”
