A study published in Arthroplasty is the first to review the association of a novel pin-less robot-assisted hip replacement technique with postoperative narcotic consumption.Read More
Cleveland Clinic’s Department of Orthopaedic Surgery recently completed its 10,000th robot-assisted total joint replacement, among the most in the U.S. Surgeons share their best tips, most challenging cases and biggest misperceptions.
Longer hospitalization does not mean a safer or faster recovery for patients age 70+ having hip replacement. Most patients can be discharged home within one day of surgery.
Compared to patients with failure of total hip arthroplasty after three years, patients with early failure have more pain and worse function one year after revision surgery.
Is direct anterior total hip arthroplasty actually less invasive than posterior and lateral approaches? Is it actually not preferred for complex cases? An orthopaedic surgeon debunks myths.

An alternative to total knee replacement for many patients with osteoarthritis, unicompartmental knee arthroplasty can preserve some ligaments and bone.
Bridge-enhanced ACL restoration (BEAR) is helping improve outcomes of ACL repair. An implant simulating a clot helps rejoin the stumps of a torn ligament.
Cannabis use may be associated with a higher risk of deep vein thrombosis, cardiovascular issues and other complications after total joint replacement, according to a Cleveland Clinic study.
In this case study of a 73-year-old with post-traumatic arthritis and a retrograde femoral nail, a surgeon uses robot assistance to simplify a potentially complicated knee replacement.
A 68-year-old man with an ankylosed hip due to severe osteoarthritis has total hip replacement. Orthopaedic surgeon Matthew Deren, MD, says the anterior approach provides the best exposure of the fused anatomy.
A recent study comparing robot-assisted versus manual total knee arthroplasty found mixed results. Robot-assisted procedures resulted in shorter hospital stays, but manual procedures resulted in better flexion. Postop complications were the same.
