Joint replacement surgery is a common procedure for people suffering from chronic joint pain and limited mobility. While the previous joint replacement surgery techniques have proven to be effective, with advancements in technology have led to a new approach – robotic joint replacement surgery. Here, we will explore what robotic joint replacement surgery is, how it works, and the potential benefits it offers.
Robotic joint replacement surgery is a surgical procedure that utilizes robotic and A.i technology to assist surgeons during the joint replacement procedure. The robot is controlled by the surgeon, who uses it to make precise incisions and to ensure that the implant is accurately placed. The robot helps the surgeon to be more accurate and precise, resulting in better outcomes for the patient.
Robotic joint replacement surgery works by using a combination of 3D imaging and computer A.I technology to create a virtual model of the patient’s joint. The surgeon then uses this virtual model to plan the surgery before even taking the patient to operation theatre and to determine the optimal placement and size of the implant beforehand thus making it more precise.
During the surgery, the robot is used to guide the surgeon’s movements, ensuring that the correct cuts are made and that the implant is placed accurately. The robot is also used to help the surgeon make any necessary adjustments to the implant during the surgery. The technology this superior helps make micromillimeter adjustments when it comes to cuts or placement of the implants, this leads to achieve the target of zero error possible.
There are many potential benefits of robotic joint replacement surgery, including:
Robotic technology allows for more precise and accurate placement of the implant, resulting in a better outcome for the patient. The millimetric precision achieved during surgery, leads to a faster recovery time, reduced pain, and better long-term results whilst the optimal placement of the implants.
Robotic joint replacement surgery is a minimally invasive procedure, which means that it requires smaller incisions and less tissue damage. This results in a shorter recovery time, fast healing of the tissues and a faster return to normal activities.
Studies have shown that patients who undergo robotic joint replacement surgery experience better long-term outcomes than those who undergo conventional joint replacement surgery. This is due in part to the increased millimetric precision and accuracy of the procedure.
Joint replacement surgery or any surgery comes with certain complications such as blood loss, infection, longer rehabilitation, tissue damage, bone necrosis, fracture and so on. With robotic technology and artificial intelligence, helps achieve a minimally invasive, less surgical time, shorter tissue damage which indirectly leads to a very lower to nil complications during or after the surgery.
Patients who undergo robotic joint replacement surgery report a high level of satisfaction with the procedure. The shorter rehabilitation time and the ability to regain their active lifestyle back sooner makes a happy and satisfied patient.
With an improved and more focussed and personalized rehabilitation programme helps patient achieve his personal goals faster.
Robotic joint replacement surgery is a promising new approach to joint replacement surgery that offers numerous benefits for patients. A consultation with an orthopaedic surgeon can help you determine if you are a candidate for robotic joint replacement surgery. The orthopaedic surgeon , your doctor is the best person to clear your doubts and help you decide what’s best treatment option for your painful knees
