New Computer Aided Pre-Operative Plan for Private Patients
Mr Bartlett is now offering a new initiative for private patients seeking hip replacement surgery. In conjunction with engineers working for Corin, he is using a validated computer algorithm to plan the optimal hip replacement size and orientation based on CT diagnostic imaging. The positioning of components during surgery is aided by custom guides to accurately deliver the preoperative plan.  The aim being to achieve the best possible function following surgery more reliably.

Both the pre-operative plan and the custom implants are normally covered by medical insurance and of course this option is also available should you choose to pay for your surgery yourself.
