Robotics-Assisted Knee Replacement
Our joint replacement specialists provide individualized care using the
very latest in medical technology. For knee replacement, we offer robotic
assistance using a breakthrough technology – the NAVIO Surgical
System. We chose NAVIO™ because it is accurate and allows us to
individualize the procedure to each patient we see.
The Robotics-assisted NAVIO™ handpiece:
How does the NAVIO™ system help perform knee replacement?
The system works in conjunction with our surgeon's skilled hands to
achieve the accurate positioning of the knee replacement components 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.
How does it work?
Through an advanced computer program, the NAVIO™ system provides
robotic 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 accuracy.
