Mr van Bavel will be running the upcoming Argo Exeter Hip course in Melbourne. The Exeter hip replacement is a the most commonly used hip replacement in Australia and has almost 50 years of clinical data supporting it including many studies showing minimal failures at long term follow up.
Mr van Bavel has been invited to attend the “MAKO masters” meeting for surgeons experienced in robotic joint replacement surgeons. Many of the worlds leading Robotic surgeons will be attending for an update on clinical research and best practice of robotic joint replacement.

Growing up, I hated doing any form of sport.
In primary school, I remember the indignity of standing in a line as my peers chose their teams, desperately hoping to not be last (I always was). Then there was high school and the uncomfortable feeling of the boys in our PE class comparing us all in our gym gear.
As rich countries welcome autonomous cars, trucks and boats onto their roads and waterways, the developing world is grappling with a humbler revolution: automated farming.
