Robotic Knee Replacement Surgery

Having knee pain caused due to osteoarthritis and your doctor suggested the traditional method of surgery which involves cuts, swelling, excess blood loss etc.? Are you afraid to undergo a surgery which does not promise to solve your knee problem completely and may even put you at various other risks?

Don’t worry.

Here is the solution to your problem. We bring to you ROBOTIC SURGERY for knee replacement. You can just relax and let this surgery do wonders for you.

How Robotic Surgery Works?

The surgeon uses the handheld robotics to precisely shape the surrounding bone before placing the knee implant and proper navigation of each area is done to see even the remotest part of the knee.

A 3D model of a patient’s knee is generated. It helps in mapping out the exact incisions and the right angles. Every knee surgery replacement is unique depending on the knee anatomy and the plant used. It removes only the damaged bone.

10 Benefits of Robot Assisted Knee Replacement

Earlier there were many apprehensions related to Robotic surgery as the patients feared that with the involvement of robotics in the surgery, it may harm them or some fault can occur in the functioning of the robotic equipment.

But such apprehensions proved to be wrong with the success of Robotic surgery in knee replacement.

This procedure has revolutionized the knee replacement concept and has turned off the mechanism of the traditional surgery.

Many patients who have undergone this knee replacement surgery have benefitted and have bounced back to live the life they wanted.

To put the benefits of Robotic surgery in words won’t do justice to the technology involved and the revolutionary role it has played.

But then here we are, to sum up, its benefits as a small contribution towards its awareness among the readers.

1. Precision

The surgery is completed with the help of robotics which means there is more accuracy in the area of the knee which needs the surgery.

The surgery is precise and restricted as exact incisions and angles can be targeted. This helps in securing the adjacent tissues which need no repair.

The functioning of the robotic is such that it reduces the chance of putting the patient at risk. But one should be clear that it is robot-controlled and not robot-centered technique.

2. Exposure Control

There is no need for a CT scan before undergoing this surgery. In fact, a single CT scan is equivalent to the exposure of 48 chest X-rays received.

It avoids CT scan by using an advanced computer program to collect anatomic and alignment information about your knee.

So a patient is saved from such harmful radiations which otherwise may harm him in other forms. This feature distinguishes this surgery from others in the most beneficial way.

3. Speed Control

The exposed burr speed is adjusted based on proximity to target cut surface. Every patient is unique and the speed is maintained according to the bearing capacity of the patient.

4. Advanced Instrumentation

The surgery is proceeded with the use of advanced instruments. It is designed to enforce bone resurfacing within the surgeon defined plan.

Instruments and surgeon’s plan go hand in hand. Another thing to be kept in mind is that the surgery is not totally dependent upon the instruments.

They play a crucial role in the successful completion of the surgery.

5. Computer Assisted

It takes the help of a computer program to ensure consistent and accurate results. It leaves no chance of any error. Such programs specifically work to deliver the best result of the surgery.

6. Robotics Assisted Hand piece

The hand piece is designed to enable access through smaller incisions. This is the master stroke of this surgery as the surgeon uses the robotic hand piece for exact incision and implant and also to reach the remotest tissue or part of the knee.

7. Flexibility

It offers multiple implant options and dynamic ligament balancing at multiple stages.

8. Confidence

There is virtual confirmation of cuts pre and post bone removal, in achieving long leg alignment and joint balance for normal knee kinematics.

9. Surgeon Controlled yet not Surgeon Dependent

This surgery is surgeon controlled yet not surgeon dependent. So it is more safe and scalable.

10. Clinically Proven

This surgery produces clinically proven results which have been tested and verified before bringing it into operation.
