Robotic/Minimally Invasive Knee Replacement
The purpose of a total knee replacement is to reduce pain and increase range of motion in the damaged knee. Some patients may be candidates for robotic total knee replacement. During a robotic total knee replacement, computer software builds a 3-D model of the patient’s knee. The model allows the surgeon to carefully plan the surgery using current images. With robotic assistance, the surgeon is able to make very precise cuts to the bone around the knee and optimize implant placement.
