We are delighted to launch this Postgraduate Diploma in the Principles of Computer and Robotic Assisted Total Knee Arthroplasty. This course supports the best clinical and technical training in the use of Computer and Robotic-Assisted navigation technology for Total Knee Arthroplasty.
This qualification enables surgeons to demonstrate the highest standards, best practice and safe use of the technology. The entry requirements are a medical degree and surgical fellowship, with a minimum of 3 years’ experience in orthopaedic surgery.
Computer-assisted orthopaedic surgery (CAOS) offers increased accuracy to total knee arthroplasty bone resections, compared to conventional techniques. Despite the proven benefits, one of the drawbacks for the adoption of CAOS technology may be the inconvenience of switching from conventional instruments to CAOS-specific instruments. Recent technology added CAOS augmentation to conventional mechanical instruments, removing the need for significant instrument learning. The system is associated with a minimal learning curve, offers good usability, and is non-disruptive to surgical flow during the early phase of adoption by new users. While the qualification does not assess surgical skills, it is an excellent foundation for surgeons expanding their clinical practice to include this operative technique.back
