Abstract

The research undertaken as part of this thesis sought to evaluate two overarching aims: 1) if the features permitted by Robotic Assisted(RA) total knee arthroplasty (TKA) could improve TKA technique, and 2) if those changes to technique yielded improved outcomes in patients undergoing RA TKA versus computer navigated TKA. These findings demonstrate that simply using RA TKA to perform the same surgical technique that has been performed with other technologies does not improve later-stage (2-year) outcomes, despite the early post-operative benefits observed. When utilising all the features of RA TKA to perform FA TKA patient outcomes can be improved.
