Transforming knee joint replacement

Orthopaedic surgeons at Spire Bushey Hospital lead the way with revolutionary knee replacement technology.

Spire Bushey’s commitment to orthopaedic excellence

Working with leading consultants in their field, we have become the private hospital of choice for knee replacements in London and our region. 

Our team of expert physiotherapists provide comprehensive prehabilitation programmes to help strengthen the limb before surgery to improve recovery. They use the onsite gym and hydrotherapy pool to support patient rehabilitation following surgery.

We offer fast access to appointments, which are available seven days a week.

If you’d like a consultation, call us on 020 8185 7575. If you’re insured, call and advise your insurance company that you're arranging an appointment with one of our orthopaedic surgeons, as you’ll need an authorisation code to book your appointment.

Pioneering robot revolutionises hip and knee joint replacement

Designed and developed by internationally renowned technology experts Smith and Nephew, the CORI system is an outstanding leap forward in technology which will revolutionise knee joint replacement. It will allow surgeons to minimise the amount of bone removed from the damaged knee before positioning the implant in exactly the right place to achieve optimum joint stability.

Unlike other robotic-assisted tools, CORI™ takes away the need for a pre-operative CT scan to provide an image of the operation area. Instead a probe feeds a 3D ‘roadmap’ of the knee into a computer, providing the surgeon with all the information needed to create a specific surgical plan for each individual patient. The operation takes around 30 minutes longer than traditional knee replacement surgery, allowing time for mapping.

The computer then feeds back information about the knee allowing the surgeon to accurately remove damaged bone to make way for the implant. If the tool is passed over a part of the knee that doesn’t need removing then the cutters automatically stop, not starting again until it reaches parts mapped out for removal.

  • CT-free technology
  • Creates a more "normal" feeling knee
  • Improvement in recovery times
  • Less removal of healthy tissue
  • More precise placement of implant

Mr Simon Jennings, Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon:

“It allows for minute adjustment and fine tuning during the operation to create a truly astonishing level of accuracy for both precision bone cutting and implant placement.

It is only a matter of time before this advance will become the standard for all joint replacements.”
