Stryker Orthopedics, owner of Mako SmartRobotics ™, recently published Dr. Kevin Borchard’s First Quarter 2021 Total Knee Replacement (TKA) Data.
Dr. Borchard, of Colorado Advanced Orthopedics, Sports Medicine and Spine at Pioneers Medical Center, continues to demonstrate excellent results and a low rate of complications. His results for first trimester patients were compared to Stryker’s database, which includes more than 600,000 elective knee and hip surgeries and more than 40,000 Mako cases in more than 200 hospitals across the country.
Dr Borchard has reduced the time for his Mako surgery by 21 minutes, or 15%, over the past three trimesters and the length of stay (SD) of his patients following simultaneous bilateral total knee replacement was in decline. 37-hour average in the first quarter of 2021, which is consistently above Stryker’s benchmark average.
One hundred percent of Dr. Borchard’s patients continue to be discharged home after surgery. In addition, none of his patients were readmitted to Pioneers Medical Center (PMC) after the surgery, which was measured at 30 days and 90 days after the operation and none of his patients were admitted to the ward. emergency PMC within 90 days after surgery. Open window. Compare that to Stryker’s benchmark average of a 30-day readmission average of 1.53%, a 90-day readmission average of 2.00%, and an average emergency room admission of 5.25%.
Dr Borchard continues to maintain zero orthopedic operative site infection, which is monitored and documented from 90 days postoperatively and reported to the National Healthcare Safety Network (NHSN).
Stryker’s first trimester data also showed that before discharge and after total knee replacement surgery, Dr. Borchard’s patients rank in the 90th percentile for distance traveled and longest distance traveled prior to discharge. , his patients walking an average of 393 feet on the day of surgery and an average of 579 feet before discharge. Stryker’s benchmarks for the same period are 135 feet and 277 feet, respectively.
Dr. Borchard’s patients demonstrated an advanced ability to bend the knee joint after total knee replacement surgery, averaging 103 degrees compared to Stryker’s benchmark mean of 87 degrees, which is above the 75% Stryker percentile.
Josh Hardy, PT, owner of DPT and physiotherapist at Monument Physical Therapy in Grand Junction, attests to Dr. Borchard’s positive patient outcomes.
“I have regularly seen Dr. Borchard’s patients eclipse 120 degrees of flexion within 2 weeks of their surgery. It was really remarkable, ”said Hardy. “The short duration of use of an assistive device coupled with rapid increases in range of motion ultimately allows the patient to return to desired activities more quickly. In our rural and mountainous community, that means people can get back to hiking and biking, or farming and ranching faster than ever before. I recently had a patient just 8 weeks after bilateral total knee replacement who told me he was able to get on his tractor to mow his hay field. I legitimately didn’t think it was possible, ”he said.
Dr. Borchard not only performs total knee, shoulder and hip replacements, but he also specializes in total knee arthroplasty reviews and arthroscopic shoulder surgery, including repair of the shoulder. rotator cuff.
