Robotic knee replacement surgery
The robot-assisted technology provides you with a personalized surgical plan based on your unique anatomy. A 3D model of your knee will be used to plan and assist your surgeon in performing a partial knee replacement or a total knee replacement.
If your surgeon determines that you are a good candidate for robotic surgery, you will be scheduled for a computed tomography (CT) scan of your knee one or two weeks prior to your surgery date. This is used to create your unique surgical plan for optimal implant replacement.
