When the hip pain affects the patient’s quality of life (night pain, pain that prevents simple activities of daily living) the patient becomes a candidate for a total hip replacement.
When the osteoarthritis, no matter what the cause, results in progressive knee pain affecting the patients quality of life and function, the patient may be a candidate for a knee replacement.
The ACL is most commonly injured during sport with pivoting, twisting or side-stepping actions. The ACL can also be injured with a direct blow to the knee or with extreme flexion (bending) or extension (straightening) of the knee.
A traumatic episode usually occurs when you least expect it. These traumatic episodes can be low energy (e.g. fall on the same level) or high energy (e.g motor vehicle accident or fall from a height).

An Osteotomy is a surgical procedure where bones are cut in order to reshape them.
This can be done for the following reasons:
In order to improve the accuracy of bone cuts and the accuracy of artificial hip component placement, Robots are used to “remove” human error. This significantly increases the accuracy of the artificial component placement and size.
This accuracy may result in better hip and knee replacement function and improved hip replacement longevity.
This is Musculoskeletal injuries caused by sport or injuries related to musculoskeletal over-use. These may include muscle, tendon, ligament, bone or joint injuries.
These injuries are thoroughly investigated with specialised imaging and diagnostic tests.
Sport injuries can be treated conservatively (non-surgical) or surgically. Surgical treatment may be open surgery or more commonly arthroscopically (key-hole surgery).
