What is Robotic Knee Replacement

A robotic knee replacement is same as a conventional knee replacement. Your surgeon removes damaged tissue in your knee and replaces it with an artificial joint. The difference is that it's done with assistance from a robotic arm or handheld robotic device . Robotic-assisted procedures allow for greater precision and lead to shorter recovery times and better results. In more complex cases, a robotic-assisted knee replacement offers a better balance in the soft tissues around your knee, and better aligns the joint. If you're having a robotic-assisted knee replacement surgery, you don't have to prepare any differently than you would for a conventional surgery.

What is Robotic Knee Replacement ?

Robotic knee replacement is a technology that uses 3-Dmapping of a knee to assess. Knee stability alignment and knee range of movement in the operation theatre enabling adjustments of bone resection and positioning of the prosthesis. It reduces the soft tissue dissector and muscle injury which helps to reduce post operation pain and improves the achievement of limb mobility quickly

What is Robotic Knee Replacement ?

The Mako system uses specific scans of your knee before surgery to get precise measurements of your knee. Before a Mako knee replacement surgery, you’ll get specialized CT scans that create a 3-D image of your knee joint, bone structure, and surrounding tissues. This detailed picture helps your surgeon plan every step of your surgery. Cuts can be made with precision to the millimeter, picking the right implant size and positioning. At the beginning of a Mako surgery, your surgeon will use tracking pins to help the robot confirm that it received correct size and positioning information from your CT scans. Then, the Mako arm positions itself and your surgeon uses the hand-held tool to perform your knee replacement. The tool will guide the surgeon throughout the procedure, enhancing their experience and skills.

Why Does it Happen?

Knee replacement surgery is most commonly performed to address severe pain caused by osteoarthritis. Walking, climbing stairs, and getting in and out of chairs are all common challenges for those who need knee replacement surgery. Patient is made to walk the next day and can be discharged in 48-72hrs.Patient

Recovery Rate

Robotic joint replacement uses more precise incisions and helps achieve optimal positioning, which may lead to a better and faster recovery. After your surgery, your surgeon and the rest of your care team will monitor your progress, help to relieve discomfort, and chart a course for your at-home recovery.

Insurance coverage

Insurance does cover the cost of the surgical procedure for a hysterectomy performed due to adenomyosis because it is on the list of procedures that are "medically required." The cost capping, however, may change from instance to case. Please get your healthcare or insurance company to validate this.
