The Advantages of Robotic Knee Surgery
Did you know that surgeons are increasingly embracing the use of robotic knee surgery in their practice? For some patients, robotic knee surgery can have many added benefits to traditional surgery, like reduced recovery time, improved accuracy, and longer lasting results. At Performance Orthopaedics, we always look for ways to improve our practice. We strive to familiarize ourselves with scientific advancements as they develop, so that we can provide the highest quality of care. See the advantages of robotic knee surgery for yourself to understand why we offer this groundbreaking operation through Zimmer Biomet’s ROSA® Knee System.
As one of the most innovative technologies in orthopaedics, robotic knee surgery uses ergonomic instruments that are precise and give greater ease of use. Conventional instrumentation cannot provide the same level of accuracy as the ROSA® Knee System because of its ability to collect and report on real-time data. Surgeons are able to see the knee respond as they are manipulating it in the procedure to give highly accurate resections and limb alignment, one of the biggest advantages of robotic knee surgery.
With flexible imaging options, the ROSA® Knee System provides greater efficiency before and during surgery. This minimizes scheduling requirements, addresses reimbursement concerns, and reduces preoperative planning time, all while reducing patient risk to radiation exposure. We create a plan for each surgery to give a replication of your anatomy along with unique instrument trays to provide surgeons with only the instruments they need to operate.
Knowing the advantages of robotic knee surgery and other options can help you make the right decision for your body. Schedule a consultation with one of our surgeons today for more information about this innovation.
Note: There are risks involved with any operation. Please consult a doctor to know what your risks are for this type of surgery.
