However, the clinical and functionaloutcomes of morbidly obese patients following primary THA remain unclear. Some studies have reported no significant difference in post-operative outcomes between obese
As value in healthcare has shifted to a measurement of quality relative to the cost, there is a greater emphasis on improving clinical and functionaloutcomes and patient satisfaction.
This is especially relevant in

Conceptually, improved accuracy of implant positioning and greater precision in restoring hip biomechanics with robotic THA will translate to further improvements in functionaloutcomes and implant survivorship. However
