Joint replacement surgery removes damaged parts of a joint and replaces them with new, man-made parts.
The goals of joint replacement surgery are to relieve pain, help the joint work better, and improve walking and other movements.
What is Joint Knee Replacement Surgery?
Joint replacement surgery can help relieve pain and restore function in severely damaged knee joints. The procedure involves cutting the damaged bone and cartilage from your thighbone, shinbone, and kneecap and replacing it with an artificial joint made of metal alloys, high-grade plastics, and polymers.
What is Robotic Surgery?
Robotic or Robot-assisted surgery is advanced computer technology with the experience of skilled surgeons.
Surgeons use consoles to manipulate special surgical instruments that are smaller, as well as more flexible.
With the Robotic Surgery, the surgeon thus can operate with enhanced precision and control even during the most complex procedures.
When can I opt for Robotic Knee Replacement Surgery?
Knee Replacement should be considered if you suffer from any of the following.
- Rheumatoid Arthritis
- Unusual bone growth disorders like Bone Dysplasias
- Knee injury
- Knee deformity
How Does Robotic Knee Replacement Surgery Work?
Robotic Knee Replacement Surgery is intended to be minimally invasive. It means that instead of large incisions, surgeons use miniaturized surgical instruments with much smaller cuts.
The surgeon controls these instruments and the camera from a device. He operates the robotic arm while looking through a stereoscopic high-definition monitor simultaneously that places him inside the patient, giving him a better and a more detailed view.
The robot-assisted surgery eliminates the possibilities of human error and results in perfect alignment, leading to the persistence of the joint implant. It ensures lesser bone damage and facilitates better post-operative outcomes for the patient.
By collecting patient-specific information, the surgeon can establish special boundaries for the robotics-assisted handpiece to assist in removing the damaged surfaces of your knee, balance your joint, and position the implant with accuracy and precision. Advanced planning software allows the surgeon to tailor the procedure to each patient.
What are the advantages of Robotic Knee Replacement Surgery?
The benefits of this surgery are –
- Lesser Blood Loss
- Higher Accuracy
- Lesser medication
- Reduced Pain
- Faster Recovery
- Minimal Infection Rate
