Computer Assisted and Robotic Surgery

Computer assisted replacement surgery uses computers to plan the surgery. Knee replacement surgery involves a series of steps. The success of each step depends on the success of the preceding step. As human body is not identical and each person’s bones are different one size will not fit all.

Computers generate a model of your knee and the all the steps of the procedure are tried out on it. This allows us to alter certain steps to suit your individual knee structure for best results. Each step can also be evaluated for accuracy. All these checks allow us to plan your surgery in minute detail and execute it perfectly for best results.

In a Robotic Surgery the surgeon uses a robotic arm for the procedure. CT scans of the knee are taken to determine the correct positioning of the implant. The system uses these images to create a three dimensional space within which the procedure will take place. The robotic arm will not move out of this space. This eliminates the risk of instruments slipping and injuring adjoining tissue. The surgeon uses the robotic arm to shape the bone and place the implant accurately. He is assisted by real time video.
