We will be talking about:
- Different types of knee injuries
- Treatment options
- Robotic-Assisted knee replacement
Using traditional surgical methods, cutting blocks or guides are placed on the thigh bone (femur) and shin bone (tibia) to help direct a surgical saw in removing the diseased bone and cartilage. This method has been considered technically challenging, as accurately placing these blocks can be difficult. In recent years, advanced surgical techniques using robotic assistance have been developed to provide a higher level of accuracy and precision.
Robotics Assistance Provides Accuracy and Precision
This system is an advancement in the way our orthopedic surgeons perform total knee replacement. The system works in conjunction with our surgeon’s skilled hands to achieve the precise positioning of the knee implant based on each patient’s unique anatomy. This added level of accuracy can help improve the function, feel and potential longevity of the knee implant.
Through an advanced computer program, the robotics system provides assistance that relays precise information about your knee to a robotics-assisted handpiece used by our surgeons during the procedure. By collecting patient-specific data, boundaries are established for the handpiece so we can remove the damaged surfaces of your knee, balance your joint, and position the implant with greater precision.
