Day of the Robots: The Future of Orthopedics, Sports Medicine Is Here

If a new development presented to the orthopedic surgery community across the globe became widely accessible to people in Denver and other cities, hip and knee replacement surgeries would become more high-tech, precise and consistent. Dr. Ranjith Narayan, a specialist in Orthopaedic Surgery at Aster Hospital-Mankhool in Dubai, presented, in his paper at the fourth edition of Synerge International Medical Conference, the next evolution in orthopedics: robotics and computer-assisted surgeries. According to Dr. Narayan, the technology will allow surgeons to achieve a never-before-seen level of precision when it comes to giving patients an artificial joint. “The FDA (Food and Drug Administration) approved robotics are available for surgeons to perform advanced surgeries such as total hip and knee replacement in complex cases,” he explained.
