What is Robotic Knee Replacement?
Robotic hip and knee arthroplasty is cutting edge technology that combines surgical innovation, an operative plan specific to you, and robotic precision. This allows surgeons to provide a soft tissue-sparing, perfectly balanced knee replacement.
Does a robot actually do the surgery?
No the robot does not perform the surgery–Drs. Knesek and Frush make the approach, set the parameters for the robot and simply sculpt your knee using feedback from the robotic arm to ensure impeccably precise alignment of the new joint.
What is the advantage of Robotic Knee Replacement?
The application of robotic assisted arthroplasty has enabled all surgeons to execute their surgical plans more accurately and consistently while protecting soft tissues and ligaments from inadvertent injury. It also allows us to limit soft tissue disturbance leading to less postoperative pain and swelling.
Applications of robotic assisted hip and knee arthroplasty range from partial knee replacements to direct anterior hip arthroplasty.
Dr. Knesek is also certified in the emerging field of robotic assisted total hip arthroplasty.
