Robotic joint replacement at Flinders Private Hospital

As per a recent news report, an Australian healthcare clinic Flinders Private Hospital has reportedly acquired the Mako Orthopedic Robotic-Arm System, that provides the surgeons with an innovative treatment option for hip or knee replacements. This new Orthopedic system utilizes computer-assisted planning in combination with a robotic arm to insert a joint replacement prosthesis with utmost accuracy & precision.

Robotic-Arm in the global joint reconstruction devices industry has emerged as a vital technique improving alignment, prosthesis positioning, soft tissue balancing, minimum bone removal, and overall improvement in quality of measures.

According to the Australian Orthopedic Association National Joint Replacement Registry, there were more than 43,183 hip replacements and around 54,277 knee replacements registered in the year 2014. The report also claims that the regional joint replacement rate has significantly surged from the previous years, primarily on the grounds of increased rate of bone fracture and the ever-growing geriatric population base. Subject to this robust rise in joint replacement surgeries and increasing deployment of technologically advanced systems, the regional joint reconstruction devices industry is expected to grow at massive rate in the ensuing years.

Conformis announces to have performed the first 3D Total Hip Replacement Surgeries at JFK Medical Center in Florida

Conformis, Inc., claims that by leveraging the advancements in automated 3D printing & additive manufacturing, it has developed a system that will provide 3D implant design that in turn has improved the overall operational efficiencies when compared to 2D templating. The design process will produce specific individualized pre-navigated implants by converting the patient’s CT scan into 3D computer model. The unique measurements will be then 3D printed and delivered to the surgeons. If experts are to be believed, with the launch of the Conformis Hip System, the company is expected to lead the way in offering innovative solutions in the joint reconstruction devices industry.

With the game-changing operative solutions, 3D printing technology has prominently made itself the most useful technology to better serve both patients and the clinicians in the global joint reconstruction device market. Huge investments  in 3D joint replacement are further expected to address the short comings of primary hip, knee, ankle, and shoulder replacement surgeries at present.

Exemplary initiatives by the leading players will undeniably have a lasting impact on the growth prospects of joint reconstruction devices market and will significantly upscale the product demand. A report by Global Market Insights, Inc., claims that the global joint reconstruction devices market will surpass USD 21.5 billion by 2024, with a CAGR projection of 3.7% over 2018-2024.
