New Computer Aided Pre-Operative Plan for Private Patients
Mr Bartlett is now offering a new initiative for private patients seeking hip replacement surgery. It involves a computer aided pre-operative plan using modern CT diagnostic imaging  to optimise implant positioning and orientation to achieve the best possible function following surgery. 

The software for this service is from company called Symbios.  They also special implants for outsized hips and those which do not fit standard off the shelf implants.  Mr Bartlett has used Symbios for the past 9 years.  

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.
