OrthoNeuro Adopts New Robotic-Assisted Technology For Partial Knee Replacements
Do you suffer from knee pain?
Are you nervous about your surgical options?
OrthoNeuro now uses the Navio Surgical System®, which provides robotic assistance in partial knee replacement for patients living with knee pain caused by early to mid-stage osteoarthritis. A Navio procedure differs from other robotic-assisted techniques because of its unique CT-free principles and handheld instrumentation.
How Can Navio Help?
Navio aids the surgeon through accurate and precise robotic assistance. During the procedure, the diseased portion of the bone is replaced with an implant that spares healthy bone and returns functionality to the knee.
Partial knee replacement may offer several benefits over total knee replacement, including:
- Less pain
- Quicker rehabilitation
- Smaller incisions
- More natural knee kinematics
- ACL and PCL preservation
- Less bone loss
What does Navio mean for you?
- Accurately placed implants
- No CT radiation exposure
- Customized surgical plans unique to your anatomy
What is osteoarthritis?
Millions of Americans suffer from the debilitating pain of osteoarthritis (OA) each day. As one of the leading causes of disability, OA is a degenerative joint disease that results in wearing and eventual loss of cartilage. Those suffering from OA often experience quality of life issues, loss of mobility, stiffness and swelling, and joint pain through activity.
How does a Navio surgery work?
The surgeon uses advanced image-free navigation to create a virtual reconstruction of the patient’s knee anatomy, ligament tension, and kinematic motion. This information is used to tailor the position of the implant to the patient’s femur and tibia shape, taking into account the patient’s unique cartilage wear, condylar shape, and soft-tissue balance. The surgeon then uses Navio’s robotic-assisted handpiece to sculpt damaged bone away from remaining healthy bone. The handpiece enforces bone resection within the surgeon defined plan, ensuring final placement of the implant is accurately positioned as intended.
