Our orthopaedic procedures

We also utilise the latest in orthopaedic technology such as the ROSA and CORI robots.

  • The ROSA robot supports surgeons in performing total knee arthroplasty (TKA) with features to assist with bone resections and assessment of soft tissue state to facilitate implant positioning intra-operatively, to improve patient outcomes.
  • The CORI robot is a robotics-assisted platform that uses CT-free technology for precise implant sizing and positioning without the need for rods. The CORI Surgical System can be used for either a partial or total knee replacement procedure.

Patient injuries commonly involve fractures of bones or injuries to joints following a sporting accident. Injuries to a joint can involve injuries to soft tissues such as ligaments, tendons, or muscles.
