Robotic Knee Surgery
Minimally Invasive Knee Replacement Surgery
Robotic knee surgery is the most advanced, state-of-the-art surgery system available today. By using the NAVIO system, board-certified orthopedic surgeon Dr. Jeffrey Carroll is able to customize your partial or total knee replacement based on your unique anatomy by creating a 3D representation of your knee's unique shape and profile without needing a CT scan. The combination of customized 3D-representation of your knee and robotic assistance allows for a more accurate fit and better long-term outcome.
For a partial knee replacement, Dr. Carroll utilizes robotic instruments that bend and rotate better than the human hand for enhanced precision, vision, and control during this minimally invasive procedure. The diseased portion of your knee can be removed and replaced with a custom prosthetic implant while healthy structures surrounding the area remain unharmed. This can result in a more normal-feeling knee, less pain, and a faster rehabilitation period.
In a total knee replacement, Dr. Carroll uses the NAVIO system with robotic assistance to replace your entire knee joint with a prosthetic implant that is designed to replicate your natural knee in both shape and function. Total knee replacements are one of the most common procedures performed these days and, as a result, you can expect a decrease in knee pain and overall improvement in getting back to your normal daily routine.
With either procedure, you may experience lower rates of complications, a reduced risk of blood clots, a shorter recovery period, and a quicker return to your pre-operative state of abilities.
If you suffer from the degenerative wear-and-tear condition known as osteoarthritis, you may be a good candidate for a partial knee replacement using the robotic assisted NAVIO system. Often performed as an outpatient procedure, this alternative to invasive knee surgery offers a quick and nearly painless recovery.
