Fortius Clinic showcases robotic innovation for joint replacement surgery at Arab Health



Fortius Clinic is attending Arab Health 2024 to showcase its robotic technology enabling surgeons to carry out highly advanced hip and knee replacement surgery for patients with chronic joint problems.

Situated in the  Harley Street Medical Area (HSMA), Fortius Clinic has two state-of-the-art Mako robots and is one of the largest Mako clinics in London.

The cutting-edge robotic technology transforms how hip and knee replacements are performed, helping patients get back quicker to their normal activities, while enabling surgeons to have a more predictable surgical experience with increased accuracy.

Suitable for all types of patients, robotic assisted joint replacement surgery brings many advantages, including shorter operating time and hospital stay, less pain and faster recovery.

Fortius Clinic Chief Executive Officer Jim McAvoy said: “Surgery is becoming more advanced, and robotic-assisted joint replacement surgeries are considered to be one of the best surgical procedures, enabling patients to have the optimal outcome in terms of recovery.

“We are excited to be part of the HSMA delegation at this year’s Arab Health to showcase this ground-breaking innovation that dramatically transforms the way hip and knee joint replacement surgery is performed, offering patients access to the latest in state-of-the art robotic surgery.”

Before surgery the patient has a CT scan, which is used to develop a 3D virtual model, enabling the surgeon to accurately plan the joint replacement down to the actual size of implant required.

During surgery, the robotic arm guides the surgeon within a pre-defined area allowing more precise positioning of the implant.

The support of the state-of-the-art Mako robotic technology enables unparalleled levels of precision, enabling the surgeon to alter the position of the implants by tiny amounts – a degree or a millimetre.

The ability to fine tune the implant position can have a dramatic effect on the eventual outcome for patients, and enables surgeons to implant the joint replacement with high degrees of confidence.

McAvoy said: “As part of HSMA, Fortius shares the same reputation for medical excellence in the UK and abroad.

“We’re proud to be part of a vibrant hub of London’s medical community and provide access to leading orthopaedic specialists.

“Along with the other medical organisations in the HSMA, we offer world-class care and first-class service.”

With locations across London, Fortius Clinic is renowned as the largest group of orthopaedic surgeons in the UK – and the ‘go to’ centre for orthopaedic and MSK conditions as well as sports injuries.

The Arab Health Exhibition & Congress is taking place from 29 January – 1 February 2024 at the Dubai World Trade Centre. 

Throughout the exhibition, the Fortius Clinic team will be located on the Harley Street Medical Area Stand on the ABHI UK Pavilion – Hall 2 Stand F30.
