Robotic Joint Replacement
You’re unique, and so is your individual anatomy. That’s why robotic technology joint replacement surgery may be right for you. The “robot” acts as an assistant to OSMC surgeons, helping to tailor the placement of the implant just for you!
Robotic-Assisted Joint Replacement Surgery of the Hip, Knee and Shoulder
Getting a precise knee implant fit is important to your comfort and overall experience following knee replacement surgery. With our specially trained physicians at the controls, the robotic system uses data collected before and during surgery to inform your doctor of the details related to your unique anatomy that may affect your implant fit and function. With this tool your surgeon can plan and execute the surgery personalized based on your individual needs.
Benefits of Robotic Joint Replacement
Being a minimally invasive approach, robotic joint replacement offers great potential:
- Precise placement of the implant
- Increased longevity of the implant
- Reduced hospital stays.
- Less time under anesthesia
- Smaller incisions
- Quicker recovery and relief
- Fast return to daily activities
- Reduced injury to adjacent tissues
People often ask: Is the robot doing the surgery? No, it is simply a robotic arm and a very precise positioning platform for the tools that OSMC physicians use as an aid to complete the surgery. OSMC knee surgeon, Dr. Erekson notes, “Robotic assisted knee replacement surgery increases our precision and gives the surgeon real-time information during the operation.”
