Robotic Assisted Partial Knee Surgery
What is Robotic Assisted Partial Knee Surgery?
Robotic assisted partial knee surgery is an innovative alternative to the conventional surgical procedure in patients suffering from degenerative knee diseases such as osteoarthritis. It is performed using robotic-arm technology that allows the surgeon to precisely perform the surgery through a smaller incision as compared to traditional surgery.
Robotic Assisted Partial Knee Surgery Procedure
This procedure utilizes a specifically designed computer that helps to determine the damaged areas within the joint, assist with soft tissue balancing and for the precise placement of the knee implant. The procedure may be used for total or partial knee surgery. In the partial knee resurfacing, only the diseased portion of your knee is removed, preserving the surrounding healthy bone and tissue. An implant is then secured over the prepared portion of your knee joint that results in resolution of symptoms and a natural knee movement. As it employs a minimally invasive technique the incidence of scarring and blood loss is very low.
Benefits of Robotic Assisted Partial Knee Surgery
The benefits of the robotic assisted partial knee surgery include:
- Smaller incisions
- Rapid recovery
- Precise placement of the implant
- Reduced injury to adjacent tissues
- Increased longevity of the implant
