Robotic surgery has recently been introduced to the Nuffield Wessex Hospital – Mr Datta is now offering this to patients.

What is MAKO Robotic Surgery?

Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Technology is an innovative assistant for surgeons when performing joint replacement. By using a 3D model of the patients unique anatomy it helps surgeons plan and perform replacement surgery with improved results. It is computer guided surgery aided by a robotic arm to perform crucial parts of the joint replacement.

How does it work?

A CT scan of your hip or knee joint is taken and then a computer programme is used to decide on the implant position and size. The resulting surgical plan is then uploaded into the robot where a 3D model of your hip or knee is created. At surgery, this plan is then executed by the robot to perform the critical stages of the joint replacement.

What are the benefits?

The benefits for the MAKO include faster recovery time, and improved alignment. The faster recovery time results from a smaller wound, less trauma to the knee and preservation in the soft-tissues, all of which result in less pain.

Where is it available?

Mr Datta is providing MAKO surgery to patients at the Nuffield Wessex Hospital.

What is the cost?

If your insured please check with your insurance company. For the self paying costs please get in touch for a bespoke quotation.


Mr Datta Performing Robotic Surgery

I want to thank Mr. Datta for taking such good care of me during both hip replacement procedures. It was my first major surgery and he helped calm my nerves. Both surgeries were successful and the after care was excellent. I am now completely pain free and able to do things I was not able to do for a number of years.

I must say my overall experience at Spire under Mr Datta was first class and I am very grateful to all involved

My care and treatment has been excellent. From my first consultation through to my surgery, I have been kept well informed and have had all the information I’ve needed to ensure the surgery went well and that I make a speedy recovery. I would highly recommend Mr Datta.

Mr King

I had a total knee replacement done and had the best care. Yes did experience a long wait to go to surgery but that's expected in most hospitals. Was in for 3 days and couldn't fault the care, nurses and cleanliness of the hospital. Lovely food. One nurse in particular always managed to make me smile
