Wilson Medical Center is proud to offer innovative, safe and high-quality surgical care through robotic-assisted knee replacement surgery. Robotic surgery, or robotic-assisted surgery – allows surgeons the ability to perform complex procedures with added precision, flexibility and control than with many conventional techniques.
Benefits of robotic-assisted knee replacement surgery
- Small incision
- Faster recover
- Optimal implant placement for more comfort
- Reduced impact to surrounding tissue
How does it work?
Using a 3D image, the surgeon can see and measure the actual dimensions of the patient’s joint and surrounding tissue. The surgeon then programs a surgical plan directly into the robotic technology, working through procedural adjustments, considerations and alterations in a virtual setting before any incision is made. During surgery, the surgeon guides the robotic-arm through this pre-defined program with full control to make adjustments, as needed.
Our specially trained surgeons use robotic technology to personalize the approach to total knee replacement - providing a solution that works for you and your unique anatomy.
