The Dorr Arthritis Institute, USA

We place great emphasis on providing world class standards of care at every stage of the treatment process, from patient registration to following up on post-procedure results. This commitment enables us to meet our most important goal of patient satisfaction by first ensuring patient safety and then meeting each patient’s post-surgery expectations in terms of a speedy recovery, minimal post-op pain, improved knee function, the ability to return to most of their normal activities, and the freedom to enjoy their lives fully again.

Bumrungrad International Hospital has agreed to cooperate academically with Dr. Lawrence D. Dorr, an expert of joint replacement surgery and the developer of robotic arm assisted surgery, as well as the founder of the Dorr Arthritis Institute in the United States of America. This collaboration allows us to exchange knowledge regarding joint replacement surgery so that we can continue to develop better methods for the treatment of our patients into the future.

Computer-assisted surgery (computer navigation)

With surgical navigation technology, a surgeon uses a wireless tracker to send information about the precise individual anatomy of the patient’s knee to the computer system through real-time data processing which enables the surgeon to make immediate evaluations during surgery.
Advantages of Joint Replacement with Computer Navigation
  • Prevent or reduce improper joint alignment and allow more precise placement than with standard instrumentation
  • Enable surgeons to evaluate the precision of the placement at the time of the surgery thus extending the longevity of the replacement joint
  • Achieve an accurate soft tissue balance at the time of the surgery thus improving post-operative knee functionality
  • Enable the placement of the implant through a small incision, thus reducing post-operative pain and speeding up the recovery process

Robotic Arm Assisted Joint Replacement Surgery

We utilize MAKOplasty®, which is joint replacement surgery assisted by a robotic arm. Combining the efficiency of this technology with the expertise and experience of our specialist team of doctors, robotic arm assisted surgery allows the surgeon to place the artificial joint with greater precision.   

Advantages of Joint Replacement with a Robotic Arm
  • Precise artificial joint placement results in less soft tissue trauma and minimal bone resection thus longer lifespan. 
  • The patient is generally able to return home quickly, in as little as one day but no more than three days.
  • The patient will be able to move their knee naturally since the tendons and cartilage are not affected during the procedure.
  • The robotic arm enables the surgeon to remove and shave off only the necessary parts of the bone, thus reducing pain.
