Robotic-Assisted Hip and Knee Replacement Surgery: Four Big Questions

Robotic-Assisted Hip and Knee Replacement Surgery: Four Big Questions

Hip or knee surgery, also known as arthroplasty, is a procedure that can help patients who manage severe joint pain and osteoarthritis. In many cases the surgery is life-changing, enabling patients to walk again, restore mobility and return to the activities and active lifestyle they used to enjoy. Robotic technology equips the surgeon with a 3D model created from a CT scan of the hip or knee having the procedure. The 3D model serves as a map for the surgeon to establish a surgical plan and he or she controls a robotic arm to perform the procedure, positioning the joint replacement in the precise location for alignment of the body.
