Dr. Noyes participated at the annual meeting of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) at New Orleans in March 2018. This annual meeting is the largest of its kind with thousands of orthopaedic surgeons throughout the world attending the annual meeting. The AAOS accepted for presentation an exhibit entitled “Patellofemoral Arthroplasty in Younger Patients: Are Recreational Activities Feasible?” This was the first national presentation of the Noyes Knee Institute on the patellofemoral joint replacement using Mako Robotic Surgery. This robotic surgery allows a highly accurate replacement of an arthritic knee cap joint allowing patients to return to normal activities of daily living and light recreational sports. Dr. Noyes stated that “The Robotic surgery is really a break thru for patients who suffer from knee cap arthritis and literally have pain and swelling from all activities of living. The replacement does not affect the other parts of the knee joint, and the patient does have in most circumstances a speedy recovery”.
