The first patient to receive a knee replacement using pioneering robotic-assisted technology at Spire Bushey Hospital, has been featured in the Daily Mail today.
Mr Pascal Murphy benefited from the cutting-edge knee treatment at Spire Bushey Hospital under the care of Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon Mr Richard Carrington in January. He shared his experience of undergoing the cutting edge treatment here.
The robot-assisted system allowed his surgeon to minimise the amount of bone removed from his damaged knee before positioning the implant in exactly the right place, the aim of this is to achieve optimum joint stability. Spire Bushey Hospital were the first hospital in Europe to perform robotic-assisted total knee replacement surgery without the need for a CT scan. Mr Murphy was selected as the first patient and he is now nine weeks post surgery and making a great recovery.
