The robotic technology we have now gives us the opportunity to deliver something very specific to each individual patient.

Pioneering technology

The Princess Grace Hospital is the first private hospital in the UK to offer robotic orthopaedic procedures for patients requiring a partial knee replacement or total hip replacement, by utilising the MAKOplasty robotic-arm.

Robotic system

This robotic system allows for much more accurate placement of your implants compared to traditional methods, meaning that you will have a more natural feeling knee post-partial knee replacement and smaller differences in leg length after a total hip replacement. The benefits of using the robot include minimal scarring, fewer complications, less pain and faster recovery times, restoring confidence in your mobility and helping you to return to your active lifestyle sooner. The lifespan of your implant should also be increased as more accurately positioned implants last longer. The MAKO robotic surgical system is used at The Princess Grace Hospital for partial knee replacements and total hip replacements. During the operation, the robotic system guides the surgeon, preventing them from moving outside of the pre-defined boundaries. This results in a more accurate placement.
