The German Precision joint replacement technology ensures a safe painless surgery and quick post-operative recovery as the patient can be made to walk in as early as 6 hours.
Why consider robotic knee replacement?
During robotic knee replacement, optical trackers are attached to the leg of the patient. The information collected by the trackers is fed into the robot. It calculates the exact alignment and bone cuts of the knee to ensure minimal damage. This same calculation, when done manually, takes a lot of time. Hence, robotic technology completes the procedure in a very short time, less than half an hour, while ensuring safety and better outcome. In addition, the advanced technology makes bone cuts more accurate while protecting quadriceps and muscle tendons during surgery. Role of the surgeon In robotic joint replacement, the surgeon performs the procedure with the assistance of a robotic arm. This helps ensure perfect cuts, proper knee joint alignment, and proven results. In addition to enhancing surgeon’s skill and accuracy, the robots assist in cutting the least amount of tissue.
Is joint replacement necessary for all patients?
At Germanten Hospital, those diagnosed with early arthritis are advised less invasive treatments like PRP stem cell therapy, RF therapy and viscosupplementation. Depending on the severity, NSAIDS, lifestyle modifications, including weight loss and exercises, intra-articular shots, physical therapy and knee braces may be recommended. However, for those with Grade 4 arthritis, who are unable to get relief from conservative treatment methods, joint replacement may be the answer. Traditional joint replacement implants may last 20-25 years and be avoided for those below 60. New procedures like German precision robotic joint replacement ensure more accurate implant positioning and advised for younger patients so they can safely undergo the procedure & get back to an active lifestyle.
