Robotic assisted surgery performed by the surgeon. Robot is used to assist the surgeon in preoperative planning and intraoperative execution of replacement of the joint.
Robotic-assisted knee replacement surgery is not done by a robot alone. Instead, it acts as a guide, helping your surgeon follow the plan laid out in advance. Like during traditional surgery, your orthopedic surgeon is in control, however, they use the robot as an additional surgical tool. The robot enhances your surgeon’s skills during all stages of your surgery to help deliver the best possible outcomes.
