Akademiese Aktiwiteite Afgelope 5 Jaar
Ons is aktief betrokke met akademiese en kliniese navorsing om op hoogte te bly met die nuutste ontwikkelinge en tegnieke. Ons belangrikste belange is Totale- of uni kompartementele knie vervangings; Patellofemorale patologie, asook ligament herstel en rekonstruksies. Ons gebruik die nuutste tegnologie, insluitend robot –geassisteerde chirurgie, rekenaar – geassisisteerde chirurgie, pasient-spesifieke instrumentasie, asook konvensionele tegnieke.
