Robotic-Arm Assisted Joint Replacement
Innovative Approach to Joint Replacements
Robotic-arm assisted joint replacement surgery is an innovative treatment option for hip, knee and partial knee replacements. The Orthopedic Hospital is the FIRST in northeastern Indiana to invest in this advanced system, which is transforming the way joint replacement surgery is performed.
Robotic Precision Guided by Surgeons
Robotic-arm assisted joint replacement surgery provides patients with a more personalized surgical plan based on their specific diagnosis and anatomy. It also enables surgeons to have a more predictable surgical experience with increased accuracy.
Prior to surgery, a CT scan of the joint being replaced is uploaded into system software and a virtual 3-D model is created. The orthopedic surgeon uses the virtual model to help identify details such as appropriate implant size, orientation and alignment and then develops a precise pre-surgery plan.
During surgery, the orthopedic surgeon guides the robotic arm, removing diseased bone and cartilage and positioning the new implant based on the predetermined surgical plan. The system also enables the surgeon to virtually adjust the plan as needed.PRIOR TO SURGERY
