Gone are the days when surgeries meant excessive blood loss and damage to the bones. But when Robotic Joint Replacement Surgery was not launched, people then had to suffer tough times and had to go through unbearable pains and blood loss. Unfortunately, they had no other option to get rid of knee problems and so they had to resort to the conventional method of knee replacement. With an aim to create awareness about the sea change which Robotic Knee Replacement Surgery has brought, here we will shed some light upon the differences between the conventional and robotic-assisted surgery.
With the intervention of robotics in the medical sciences, it has given another direction to this field. It has fostered the use of modern technology for medical treatments. It has also touched the Orthopaedics sector and has proved to be very beneficial in bringing effective results for the patients undergoing robotic knee replacement surgery.
Robotic Knee Replacement Surgery :
Robotic Knee Replacement Surgery is an evolution and a boon for the people who are in misery suffering from knee problems. It has brought new innovation and stimulated the growth of Orthopaedics field. The surgeons can effectively operate with least chances of errors. It has surpassed other methodologies and is continuing doing so.
Procedure for Robotic Knee Replacement Surgery :
Here the surgeon uses the handheld robotics to shape the surrounding bone before placing the knee implant. A 3D representation of knee profile is created which is used by the surgeon to determine the size and position of the implant. The results of this surgery are more accurate and reliable as it is possible to target only the damaged bone with exact precision. It assists both in partial and total knee replacement.
- Partial Knee Replacement :
- Total Knee Replacement :
In partial knee replacement, only the damaged portion of the knee is replaced keeping other tissues and ligaments away from any such replacement. Robotic – assisted surgery is conducted to remove only the damaged bone and thus placing the implant which is prepared using the 3D representation.
In total knee replacement, the total knee is replaced using a prosthetic implant which is a replication of the shape, motion and stability of your knee. This procedure gives a natural feeling to the person and thus gives a second chance to live life independently.
Advantages of Robotic Knee Replacement Surgery :
Earlier there were many apprehensions related to Robotic surgery as the patients feared that with the involvement of robotics in the surgery, it may harm them or some fault can occur in the functioning of the robotic equipment. But such apprehensions proved to be wrong with the success of Robotic surgery in knee replacement.
This procedure has revolutionized the knee replacement concept and has turned off the mechanism of the traditional surgery. Many patients who have undergone this knee replacement surgery have benefitted and have bounced back to live the life they wanted. To put the benefits of Robotic surgery in words won’t do justice to the technology involved and the revolutionary role it has played. But then here we are, to sum up, its benefits as a small contribution towards its awareness among the patients .
- Precision :
- Exposure Control :
- Speed Control :
- Advanced Instrumentation :
- Computer Assisted :
- Robotics Assisted Hand piece :
- Flexibility :
- Confidence :
- Clinically Proven
The surgery is completed with the help of robotics which means there is more accuracy in the area of the knee which needs the surgery. The surgery is precise and restricted as exact incisions and angles can be targeted. This helps in securing the adjacent tissues which need no repair. The functioning of the robotic is such that it reduces the chance of putting the patient at risk. But one should be clear that it is robot-controlled and not robot-centered technique.
There is no need for a CT scan before undergoing this surgery. In fact, a single CT scan is equivalent to the exposure of 48 chest X-rays received. It avoids CT scan by using an advanced computer program to collect anatomic and alignment information about your knee. So a patient is saved from such harmful radiations which otherwise may harm him in other forms. This feature distinguishes this surgery from others in the most beneficial way.
The exposed burr speed is adjusted based on proximity to target cut surface. Every patient is unique and the speed is maintained according to the bearing capacity of the patient.
The surgery is proceeded with the use of advanced instruments. It is designed to enforce bone resurfacing within the surgeon defined plan. Instruments and surgeon’s plan go hand in hand. Another thing to be kept in mind is that the surgery is not totally dependent upon the instruments. They play a crucial role in the successful completion of the surgery.
It takes the help of a computer program to ensure consistent and accurate results. It leaves no chance of any error. Such programs specifically work to deliver the best result of the surgery.
The hand piece is designed to enable access through smaller incisions. This is the master stroke of this surgery as the surgeon uses the robotic hand piece for exact incision and implant and also to reach the remotest tissue or part of the knee.
It offers multiple implant options and dynamic ligament balancing at multiple stages.
There is virtual confirmation of cuts pre and post bone removal, in achieving long leg alignment and joint balance for normal knee kinematics.
This surgery produces clinically proven results which have been tested and verified before bringing it into operation. Post surgery patient can walk with support as early as in 4hrs with no pain.
