The milestone was reached with a procedure carried out by Cambridge orthopaedic surgeon Chris Gooding.

The hospital was the first in East Anglia to offer surgery using the technology. It is deployed for total and partial knee and total hip replacement procedures for patients across the region.

Sophie Hudson, the hospital’s sales and services manager, said: “I’m delighted to congratulate our specialist group of surgeons known as SMART (Specialist Mako Assisted Robotic Team) on another milestone at Nuffield Health Cambridge Hospital.

“Thank you to our dedicated team of specialists who continue to lead the way through innovative technology for Cambridge.”

This type of surgery enables a more personalised surgical plan for joint replacements. Prior to the procedure, a 3D model is created based on the patient’s own CT scan, enabling the exact size and orientation of the hip or knee implant to be planned.
