The robotic-assisted technology ensures performance of surgery with more precision and accuracy. Robotic-assistance is integrated with handheld instrumentation aimed to guide the surgeon at every step. It mainly focuses on customized patient-planning considering the shape, size and motion of the knee joint because correct placement and alignment of knee joint is extremely crucial as it determines the life of the patient’s implant.
The Robotic-assisted surgical system helped in eliminating CT/MRI Scans making surgeries more simple and accurate. It has reported success and efficiency in both, partial and total knee replacement surgeries.
How it works: The Unicondylar and Patellofemoral (UNI and PFJ) guide the surgeon in creating implant plans that localize components and balance soft-tissue. Then, the robotic-assisted technology translates this information into a virtual plan, thereby eliminating the need of standard mechanical procedures, cuts and jigs. The robotic-assisted execution provides the surgeon with a 3D colour map of the knee replacement plan to be executed through handheld instrumentation. This offers multiple control modes, enabling the surgeon to accurately prepare the bone for knee replacement.
