Robotic Assisted Knee Replacement Surgery

What is a Robotic Assisted Knee Replacement Surgery?

A knee replacement is a procedure that involves removal of area of the knee joint that has been damaged by arthritis and replace these parts with implants. Robotic-assisted knee replacement surgery is like traditional knee replacement surgery but uses technology to aid the surgeon as they plan for and execute a precise knee replacement personalised for your specific anatomy. The technology is controlled by the surgeon and the device does not move or operate on its own.

What are the benefits of using Robotic assisted Knee Replacement?

There are several potential benefits to using this technology for your knee replacement. During your procedure, the technology will gather details and data related to your knee to assist the surgeon in determining an optimal implant fit.
Robotic-assisted technology may deliver*:

  • A greater range of motion (how well you can bend and flex your knee after surgery)
  • Less pain compared to traditional methods
  • More consistent outcomes and faster recovery times (reduced length of hospital stay, hospital readmissions, and health visits)
*(Based on studies conducted across multiple robotic-assisted knee replacement systems)

Robotic-Assisted Solution helps surgeons perform knee replacement surgery that is tailored to each patient’s knee anatomy and is designed to provide digital precision and accuracy to get you back to the things you love.

Who is suitable for Robotic-Assisted Knee Replacement Surgery?

If your GP has identified that you have severe arthritis for which non-operative treatments are ineffective, they will make the decision to refer you to an orthopaedic surgeon to explore whether surgery could be an appropriate treatment option. We can than assess you to determine the best surgical approach based on your individual circumstance and your suitability for knee replacement surgery using the Robotic-Assisted Platform.
