New techniques in both surgery and peri-operative period, have shifted the focus of joint replacement surgery towards enhanced rapid recovery. The addition of robotic technology in the operating theatre at the Busamed Paardevlei Private Hospital has proved to be a useful adjunct in the ever progressing field of knee replacement surgery.

Sporting knee injuries are ideally managed through minimally invasive, arthroscopic techniques to expedite return to play.

Utilising evidence based principals in foot and ankle surgery enhances outcome measures. With the complexity, and wide variation in pathology seen within the foot and ankle, an individualised treatment approach is an essential part of treatment.

Minimally invasive and arthroscopic techniques are utilised wherever possible to minimise the impact of surgery on recovery times.
