Robotic Knee Replacement


Robotic Surgery with Knee Prosthesis

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.

With to Navio robotic system, 3D model is created in flat and vertical plans of the knee joint during surgery without the need for preoperative CT scanning. The size of the implant and the angles in the prosthesis placing a part and the adaptation of the prosthetic parts are instantly determined. The Navio robotic arm visualizes soft tissue balance with numerical data to assist the surgeon in optimal and balanced placement of implants. Thus, the patient is not exposed to a CT scan before surgery.

The surgeon removes the damaged bone from the remaining healthy bone using Navio's robotic handpiece. It provides safe operation for both the patient and the surgeon without even allowing a millimeter error. 

How to Perform Knee Prosthesis Surgery with Robotic Surgery?

Without the need for preoperative tomography with Navio robot, the anatomical data of the knee is collected during the operation and a 3D model is created in horizontal and vertical planes. Model information provides tool-time information that enables the correct 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.
