Robotic Knee Replacement Surgery: Advantages, Success Rate

Arthritis has no cure. Advances in technology and newer medicines are effective in treating arthritis pain. Robotic knee replacement surgery is promising in providing excellent results with short recovery times.

Our expert orthopedic surgeons at Yapita Health perform thousands of robotic knee replacements yearly.

What is Robotic Knee Replacement?

Robotic knee replacement is done using assistance from a robotic arm or handheld robotic device allowing greater precision with short recovery times and better treatment results.

Robotic knee replacement is better than conventional knee replacement surgery because of the following disadvantages associated with the conventional method:

  • Invasive

  • Painful

  • Longer recovery time

  • Misalignment of knee components

  • Limited visualization of the joint

Steps in Robotic Knee Replacement Surgery

The steps in robotic knee replacement surgery are:

  • CT scan and pre-surgical planning CT CT scans are used to obtain a highly accurate 3D model of the joint. It aids in deciding the right type and size of implant to be used for guided optimal implant placement. Planning and visualization. This step determines how much bone to remove and the position of metal implants

  • Surgical implementation: Robotic arms are used to prepare joints for the implant. These prevent unnecessary damage to the adjacent tissues. The surgeon guides the robotic arm.

  • Implant placement with accuracy: An implant is placed inside the joint to help regain movements and motion.
