Healio reported on April 19 that, “compared with computer-navigated total hip arthroplasty, robotic-arm assisted THA yielded better outcomes and improved early clinical recovery, according to published results.” The original study, published in BMC Musculoskeletal Disorders, compared early outcomes 60 patients who underwent THA using either computer navigation systems (nTHA) and robotic arm-assisted THA (rTHA). It concluded that the rTHA group had shorter surgical time, postoperative pain, and number of days until independent walking.
