When Robotic Knee Replacement May Be Necessary

Robotic knee replacement may be recommended for individuals whose knee condition has significantly impacted their quality of life and who have not found relief through other non-surgical treatments. Common reasons for undergoing robotic knee replacement include:

  • Severe osteoarthritis
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Post-traumatic arthritis
  • Knee deformity or instability
  • Failed previous knee surgery

The Surgical Procedure

During robotic knee replacement surgery, the patient receives anesthesia while the surgeon utilizes robotic assistance. This technology collaborates with advanced imaging to create a detailed virtual knee joint model, facilitating precise surgical planning. Through small incisions, damaged tissue is carefully removed, and the robotic arm guides the surgeon to position the knee implant accurately according to the preoperative plan.
Throughout the procedure, the robotic system continuously monitors and adjusts for any changes in the knee’s anatomy, ensuring optimal fit and functionality of the new knee joint. The incisions are closed once the implant is securely placed, and the patient is taken to a recovery room.

Excel Health’s Approach

Excel Health offers state-of-the-art robotic knee replacement surgery to help our patients regain mobility and alleviate pain caused by debilitating knee conditions. Our skilled orthopedic surgeons have extensive training and experience in performing robotic-assisted knee replacements and are committed to providing personalized care for each patient. We also utilize advanced imaging technology to create a customized surgical plan for the most accurate implant positioning, ensuring our patients receive the best possible outcome.

Post-surgical Care and Recovery

After robotic knee replacement surgery, patients engage in structured rehabilitation to restore knee strength, mobility, and function. This entails physical therapy exercises, gait training, and pain management techniques to aid recovery. Patients gradually escalate activity levels under healthcare provider supervision, avoiding high-impact activities that could stress the new knee joint. Regular follow-up appointments monitor progress and healing and address any complications.
