Robotic Surgery Technology for Hip and Knee Replacement
Venice Regional Bayfront Health's offer a minimally invasive option to alleviate knee pain associated with early to mid-stage osteoarthritis. Surgeons use a robotic arm surgical system to perform partial knee replacement, a procedure that allows them to resurface the diseased area while sparing the patient’s healthy bone and surrounding tissue. The digital tracking system constantly monitors and updates the patient’s anatomy and allows the surgeon to make real-time adjustments to optimize implant positioning and placement.
Surgeons also use this minimally invasive surgical system to provide a minimally invasive option for total hip replacement. This advanced technique allows surgeons to prepare the hip socket for a more exact implant alignment, and reduces complications such as excessive wear on the joint, unequal leg length or dislocation.
Robotic surgery may offer a number of benefits over traditional knee replacement techniques, including:
- Enhanced implant positioning that may result in a more natural knee motion.
- Less pain, a shorter hospital stay and a quicker recovery.
- Typically covered by most Medicare-approved and private health insurers.
