Why Knee Replacement?
Knee Replacement becomes inevitable in advanced stages of a Knee conditions. Though there are various medical reasons of Knee pain; the most common condition that leads to Knee replacement is Osteoarthritis. This condition develops when the cushioning cartilage of Knee joints wears off and bones begin to rub against each other. This causes pain, swelling, stiffness and damage to other parts of the knee.
There is no cure for Osteoarthritis. But, in early stages it can be managed by exercise, weight reduction, medication & injections. When it causes severe pain over a period of time, surgery is the best option. Depending upon the extent of the disease, Partial or Total Knee Replacement are done. Partial Knee Replacement is a solution, where the disease restricted only to the Inner half of the Joint. But, if Osteoarthritis progresses affecting all the compartments, Total Knee Replacement is done.
What is a NAVIO Robotics knee replacement?
The NAVIO system is a recent advancement in in the field of Knee replacement surgery. Every NAVIO procedure has an personalized plan based on unique anatomy of a person. The system helps the surgeon to achieve precise positioning of the tools during surgery. This level of accuracy can help improve the function, feel and longevity of the knee implant and joint.
How does the NAVIO system achieve these results?
The NAVIO system provides robotic assistance through an advanced computer program. Before a Knee replacement surgery the computer scans and relays precise information about the patient’s knee joint to a robotics-assisted arm. By using this patient-specific information, the computer establishes boundaries for the robotics-assisted arm, so that the surgeon can balance the Knee joint and position components with greater precision.
What are the advantages of NAVIO Robotics-assisted Technology & What it can mean for You?
Robotic assisted medical procedures definitely has certain inherent advantages over pure manual interventions. And when combined with accomplished and skillful medical minds, the results can be just outstanding. The advanced robotic machine at SIMS Hospital, Vadapalani lends the following benefits, which every person undergoing a surgery expects –
- More accuracy and safety
- Less pain
- Best outcomes
- Happy post treatment lifestyle
Now, a traditional Knee replacement surgery may not give these benefits. Because, when it comes to physical measurement and numeric precision, machines seems to fare better than humans. But, how to use that precision, a human mind is better judge. Hence, the combination of a robotic system and a trained surgeon facilitates the following surgical approach that results in the best possible post surgical life.
- Bone preservation and restoration of normal function
- Lesser surgery and faster recovery
- Ligaments retained and more natural motion
- No requirement of post-operative physiotherapy
