Consultant Orthopaedic, Joint & Arthroplasty Surgeon.
This surgery marked the first robot-assisted total hip replacement performed in Malaysia using Mako SmartRobotics.
Patient experience undergoing robotic-assisted surgery.
80-year-old Madam Lim has been battling worsening hip pain from osteoarthritis, which now limits her to walking just 10 meters before needing to rest.
She came all the way from Teluk Intan, Perak to consult with me and after discussions with her family members, she decided to embark on a total hip replacement with Mako SmartRobotics. On July 5, she successfully underwent the surgery and was discharged three days later. Since then, she has made a full recovery. During her last consultation at the end of September, she can walk freely by then. What can we look forward to in the future of orthopaedic surgery?
I wish to have more robot-assisted surgeries in the area of orthopaedics besides just arthroplasty.
