Procedures offered

Fortius surgeons use the advanced Mako robotic arm system to assist during total hip replacements, total knee replacements and partial knee replacements. The robotic technology provides a personalised surgical plan for joint replacement surgery.

Knee replacement

Joint replacement for the knee is available for both total knee replacements, as well as partial (unicompartmental) replacements. Whether you need a total or a partial knee replacement depends on how damaged your joint is and your surgeon will discuss this with you.

Knee replacement surgery can relieve conditions including:

  • Bone dysplasia (unusual bone growth)
  • Degeneration in the joint
  • Gout
  • Knee deformity or injury
  • Osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis

Hip replacement

We offer hip replacement surgery as well as hip revision surgery. A hip replacement may be necessary when medication or other lifestyle changes have not been able to relieve symptoms and joint preservation treatment has not been successful.

Hip replacement surgery can relieve conditions including:

  • Arthritis
  • Avascular necrosis
  • Fractures
  • Hip dysplasia

Mako robot-assisted procedure

CT scans are used to create a 3D model of the patient's hip or knee for pre-surgical planning. In the operating theatre, your surgeon follows the personalised surgical plan while preparing the bone for the joint implant.

The Mako robotic arm guides the consultant within pre-defined areas which prevent them from moving outside planned areas, avoiding the removal of healthy bone tissue.

As the surgeon uses the robotic arm to resurface the knee or hip joint for the placement of implants, the robotic arm uses real-time feedback to guide the surgeon's movements enabling a high degree of precision and accuracy in placing implants.

The robotic arm is equipped with a saw and the surgeon is free to remove bone within the boundaries identified during the planning stages. If the surgeon attempts to move outside these boundaries, the saw will turn off. This helps the surgeon minimise the trauma to the hip or knee and preserves the maximum amount of healthy tissue.
