Robotic-Assisted Surgery Q & A

What is robotic-assisted surgery?

Robotic-assisted surgery is a surgical technique that uses advanced technology to improve surgical outcomes. 

Surgeons often combine the advanced technique with minimally invasive surgical tools to limit tissue damage. However, they may also use robotic-assisted technology to improve surgical precision and control during traditional open procedures.  

ROC Orthopedics uses robotic-assisted surgery to perform knee replacement surgery using the advanced ROSA Knee system.

What is the ROSA Knee System?

The ROSA Knee System is a robotic surgical tool that supports your orthopedic surgeon during your total knee replacement. The innovative platform provides real-time data, allowing your orthopedic surgeon to create a personalized surgical plan for removing your damaged joint tissue.

The robotic technology helps your surgeon determine the right size prosthetic device and assesses the health of the remaining soft tissue to assist in the placement of your prosthetic parts. 

These features ensure proper prosthetic alignment for better post-surgical knee replacement outcomes. 

What are the benefits of robotic-assisted surgery?

There are many benefits of robotic-assisted surgery for both you and your surgeon. Your orthopedic surgeon performs your knee replacement surgery with greater accuracy, control, and efficiency with the ROSA Knee System.

During robotic-assisted knee replacement surgery, your surgeon gets live feedback on the structure of your knee. They use the data to perform a “virtual” knee resection. This innovative technology allows your surgeon to adjust your surgical plan as needed based on real-time clinical data. 

Am I a candidate for robotic-assisted surgery?

Your orthopedic surgeon at ROC Orthopedics determines if you’re a candidate for robotic-assisted surgery during your consultation. As noted, the orthopedic practice performs robotic-assisted surgery for total knee replacement procedures.

You may need knee replacement surgery if you have chronic knee pain from osteoarthritis and non-surgical interventions no longer provide sufficient relief from your discomfort. 

Your orthopedic surgeon may also consider you a candidate for robotic-assisted surgery for knee replacement if your chronic knee pain keeps you from engaging in your normal daily activities. 

The orthopedic surgeons at ROC Orthopedics are experts in joint replacement procedures and use the surgical techniques that provide you with the best possible outcomes.
