Do Robots Improve Surgery?

Robots used in surgery

The Australian Orthopaedic Association, the Australian Knee Society & the Arthroplasty Society of Australia have just published a position statement on robotic surgery.  Meanwhile we continue to work hard on alignment and balance of knee replacement surgery.

We identify that the ZUK partial knee replacement at five years has a revision rate of 4.9%, the only registry data on robotic surgery is the Restoris with a rate of 1.2% at one year.  We are awaiting further data.
