Makoplasty Robotic Surgery with Knee Prosthesis
Makoplasty is an advanced technology for joint prosthesis surgery. With the robotic system, prosthesis surgery can be performed by targeting the knee part where calcification is damaged and protecting the healthy tissues and ligaments surrounding that part. Thus, internal, external and posterior knee joint compartments of the knee joint can be prosthetically operated. Insertion of an artificial joint only on the inner or outer joint side is called unicomportantial and its application to two regions is called bicompartmental knee prosthesis.
Robotic surgery and knee prosthesis procedure starts before the patient is taken to surgery. Makoplasty RIO Robotic Arm Interactive Orthopedic System is capable of making three-dimensional planning before surgery. The parts where the implants will be placed and the movements of the implant are digitally planned in the most accurate way on the computer. It allows the surgeon to plan and perform the surgery with the finest detail by determining the person's natural joint kinematics before the surgery and calculating the placement of the prosthetic parts accordingly with high sensitivity and accuracy.
Makoplasty knee prosthesis method, which is applied with RIO Robotic Arm Interactive Orthopedic System under the control of the surgeon, minimizes the margin of error and makes the recovery process shorter, painless and easier.
How to Perform Knee Prosthesis Surgery with Robotic Surgery?
Computed tomography of the knee joint is taken before surgery. With the help of tomography, 3-dimensional model images of knee bone and joint structure are created. The model information is used in conjunction with the RIO software to plan the operation in accordance with the patient's anatomy. This software provides real-time information that allows accurate positioning and alignment of the implant during surgery.
During surgery, the robotic arm provides the orthopedic surgeon with real-time visual and tactile feedback to the surgeon for optimal use of pre-made kinematic calculations of the joint prosthesis, while guiding the proper preparation and placement of the implant housing. When the surgeon performs the surgery, the robotic system prevents the surgeon from going out of planning and making mistakes.
Even an experienced orthopedic surgeon has some margin of error when manually adjusting implant positions. With the robotic system, the compatibility of the implants at all bending angles of the knee is evaluated kinematically during surgery. Real-time adjustment can also be performed during surgery to ensure accurate knee kinematics and soft tissue balance. This minimizes the margin of error by ensuring that the surgical procedure is performed precisely and highly accurately, specifically to the patient's own anatomy. This leads to a low risk of further unwanted complications (such as mechanical loosening and malposition).
In the robotic surgery procedure, only the knee ligaments are preserved during the removal of the deformed joint surface and bone structures, and a more natural knee feel can be achieved in the patients. continue.
As a result of smaller incision, minimum tissue trauma and maximum protection of healthy bones in robotic knee joint prosthesis surgery, the patient heals faster and painlessly and returns to daily life more quickly. Generally, patients begin to be operated on the same day or the following day after surgery. Depending on the patient's general health, they are allowed to return to normal daily activities after a few weeks.
All prosthetic implants have an expected lifespan, which varies depending on various factors such as the patient's body weight, activity level and shape, the quality of his bone structure, and his physician's recommendations. In robotic surgery, the high accuracy and precision of the technical measurements and the placement of the implant in the most ideal anatomical position for each patient contribute to less wear and loosening of the implant, contributing to prolonged prosthesis life.
