Houston Surgeon Dr. Robert Burke Celebrates Milestone of 1,000 Technology-Assisted Total Joint Procedures

HOUSTON, Sept. 13, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Dr. Robert Burke, orthopedic surgeon, has reached a significant milestone by successfully completing his 1,000th procedure using OrthAlign technology for total hip and total knee replacements.

Dr. Burke has been instrumental in introducing innovative surgical solutions to the greater Houston area. Notably, he was the first surgeon in the region to utilize OrthAlign’s HipAlign® and Lantern® navigation systems, which provide surgeons intraoperative information in total hip and total knee replacements to deliver accurate, patient-specific care. The smartphone-like device is designed to improve accuracy and reduce OR times without the investment, equipment, or pre-operative imaging required by many robotic systems.


A board-certified orthopedic surgery and sports medicine surgeon, Dr. Burke has always been at the forefront of the latest advancements in medical research and technology.

“As a surgeon, I have seen firsthand the benefits of using technology in total knee and hip replacements,” said Dr. Burke. “The navigation system acts like a GPS and provides me with real-time feedback and precise alignment, resulting in improved accuracy and consistency. With OrthAlign, I can confidently deliver optimal results and enhance the overall surgical experience.”
