A new frontier for positive post-surgical outcomes

Bernard Ross discusses the value of Enhanced Recovery After Surgery and the role of MedTech in improving outcomes.

Some fifty years after the first human heart transplants took place, the procedure – if not common place – now saves the lives of at least 5,000 people per year. Such has been the speed of development in surgery that highly complicated procedures – like complex brain surgery or minute but lifesaving robotic surgery – are undertaken across the world regularly, while significant orthopaedic procedures such as hip, knee and ankle replacements are positively transforming the lives of people every day

As medicine reaches the frontiers of what is possible with surgery – a place where clinical gains will become more marginal – medical practitioners are looking to recovery as a new opportunity to enhance medical outcomes.

The development of modern forms of surgery, including laser, computer-assisted and robotic surgery, have had significant positive impacts on surgical outcomes. Robotic surgery enables doctors to perform complex procedures using enhanced techniques that deliver more precision, flexibility, and control than traditional techniques.
