Unicompartmental Knee Replacement Gold Coast

Knee Replacement Surgery has done wonders for the many patients suffering debilitating injuries and/or arthritic conditions however the medical industry constantly strives for improvements.


Dr Jason Tsung performs partial or ‘half’ knee replacements by introducing Robotic-Assisted Unicompartmental Knee Replacement (UKR) surgery to the Gold Coast, offering to be one of the first Orthopaedic Surgeons to operate out of John Flynn Private Hospital.

Robotic-Assisted Arm Surgery Improves Implant Positioning and Limb Alignment [1]


Component positioning, soft tissue balance and overall limb alignment are the key factors which determine a successful clinical outcome following Unicompartmental Knee Replacement (UKR). Robotic-arm assisted UKR has been shown to lessen the difficulty of achieving ideal outcomes compared to utilising manual instrumentation resulting in improved postoperative implant positioning and limb alignment in a study presented at the 26th Annual Congress of ISTA, October 16-19, 2013, Palm Beach, FL, by Coon T, Roche M, Pearle A, Dounchis J, Borus T, Buechel F Jr.


92% of patients reported “Very Satisfied” or “Satisfied” [2]



752 patients (854 knees) from six surgeons were enrolled in a study, with a minimum two year follow up which examined the survivorship of robotic arm assisted UKR coupled with a novel, anatomically designed implant at two years post-surgery. When asked about their satisfaction with the overall function of their operative knee, 92% of patients reported “Very Satisfied” or “Satisfied”
