Patient-specific knee replacement surgery
Professor Raut is skilled in patient-specific knee
replacement surgery, a cutting edge technique to custom-fit the replacement
knee prosthesis to the individual's anatomy. MRI scans of the patient's
knee are used to construct a 3D computer model from which the prosthesis is
then moulded. Surgery times with this technique are reduced and there is
excellent accuracy in positioning achieved with the customised prosthesis.
Use of ceramics in hip replacement for younger patients
Hip replacement surgery is one of the most commonly
performed orthopaedic procedures, bringing relief from arthritic pain and
improved mobility to the majority of patients on whom it is performed.
The downside to it being performed on younger patients, such as those with
arthritic hips caused by sporting activities, is that not only do replacement
joints wear out over time, but also they are known to wear out more quickly in
young, more active people.
Professor Raut uses ceramics for hip replacements for
younger, active patients. Made of high-strength ceramic that has a
minimal wear rate (1000 less than the standard metal-on-polythene implant). These
replacements do not suffer the inflammation, bone loss and distribution of wear
products in the body that can lead to the failure of other types of
