Over 200,000 knee and hip replacements are undertaken every year in the UK. With an ageing population and an NHS backlog, it’s more important than ever to ensure these elective surgeries are done as safely and effectively as possible.
Join our next online public lecture, Improving recovery from surgery, to hear from Professor Tom Wainwright and Professor Rob Middleton from BU’s Orthopaedic Research Institute (ORI), who have been exploring ways to better prepare people for orthopaedic surgery and enhance their recovery.
The event will take place from 7-8.30pm on Tuesday 24 January 2023, as part of our online public lecture series, which shares BU research and expertise with audiences around the world.
Tom and Rob will discuss how enhanced recovery techniques have been adopted by healthcare organisations globally and reduced the amount of time patients spend in hospital, as well as reducing complications and readmissions, particularly in older patients.
They will also talk about their work pioneering the use of robotic surgery in hip and knee replacements, as well as exploring ways to ensure patients can return to normal life after surgery.
