A Robot’s Accuracy. A Surgeon’s Expertise
Paradise Valley Hospital offers CT-free, robotic-assisted, total and partial knee replacement surgery. The robotic-assisted surgical system helps surgeons perform precise and accurate partial knee placement utilizing the most advanced technologies available.
The Smith & Nephew Navio™ Surgical System technology uses an advanced CT-free, intra-operative registration, planning and navigation platform to assist the surgeon in building patient-specific surgical plans. The Navio robotic-controlled hand piece assists the surgeon in preparing the bone with the precision of robotics in a hand-held, freehand sculpting technique.
The patient receives the benefits of robotic-guidance without additional time spent for pre-operative procedures. By using motion sensors placed around and on the knee during surgery to capture movement and the bone structure, the technology then feeds the information to a nearby computer for mapping. By using this kinematic reconstruction and anatomic landmarks, the knee ligaments can be better balanced for a more natural-feeling knee.
For osteoarthritis sufferers, the procedure is less invasive and results in a quicker recovery.
The Smith & Nephew Navio surgical system will expand the options for San Diegans seeking total or partial knee replacement. The potential benefits of robotic-assisted knee replacement for patients are:
- Consistent results
- Accurately placed implants
- Customized planning
- No CT radiation required
- Less pain
- Quicker recovery
- Lower risk of complications
