Question

  1. What is the clinical effectiveness of robotic-assisted surgical systems used for patients requiring hip arthroplasty?
  2. What is the cost-effectiveness of robotic-assisted surgical systems used for patients requiring hip arthroplasty?

Key Message

Studies describing the clinical effectiveness of robotic-assisted surgical systems for hip arthroplasty reported variable results, with some findings indicating a benefit of robotic-assisted surgical systems, few findings indicating a benefit of conventional or manual surgical procedures, and most findings describing no difference between interventions.

Complications of robotic-assisted surgical systems for hip arthroplasty as compared to conventional or manual surgical procedures were generally found to have few differences found between treatment groups.

Cost-effectiveness evidence describing robotic-assisted surgical systems for hip arthroplasty was scarce, with 1 study identified by this review that bore limited relevance to the Canadian context.

The quality of currently available evidence describing the clinical effectiveness of robotic-assisted surgical systems for hip arthroplasty is low, indicating the importance of more rigorous research (including randomized controlled trials) addressing this topic.

Cost-effectiveness evidence relevant to the Canadian and/or public-payer context is needed.
