The Best Robotic Knee Replacement Surgeon in NYC
Robotic Knee Replacement Surgery (Partial or Unicompartmental): medial, lateral, patella-femoral
If you have been told that you need knee replacement surgery, you should know about all your orthopedic surgical keen options. While total knee replacements are currently the most common knee replacement surgery performed by our NYC orthopedic surgeons, there is a minimally invasive procedure called robotic-assisted partial knee resurfacing that is proving to be a popular option for many of our NYC and out of town knee surgery patients that we are proud to offer our patients.
The FDA has approved the use of robotic guidance systems to assist orthopedic surgeons with removing and resurfacing the arthritic part of a knee without sacrificing your entire knee joint. This “minimally invasive” procedure is performed through a smaller incision and allows the orthopedic surgeons to preserve as much of your natural bone, tissue, ligaments, and cartilage as possible.
Please note: A doctor’s referral is NOT necessary from a General Practitioner to see our sports medicine or orthopedic surgery specialists for a consultation, 2nd opinion, or for treatment at our orthopedic practice – including knee replacement surgery.
We offer full out of network insurance benefits for robotic knee diagnosis surgery (we will contact your insurance company and submit for you). You will enjoy the luxury and benefit of academic medicine in a top rated concierge environment without the hassle of long hospital waiting room times and paperwork.
We are honored to have been awarded “Best Orthopedic Surgeons in America” by New York Magazine for over a decade. Our best in class orthopedic sports medicine surgeons have also been recognized by SuperDoctors, The New York Times, Top Doctors, New York Magazine’s “Best Doctors” issue, and hundreds of leading publications, news programs, and orthopedic surgeon’s review websites.
Benefits of Robotic Knee Replacement Surgery
- Faster recovery time
- Less invasive
- More predictable outcomes
- Augments surgical precision
With computer-assisted robotic knee replacement surgery, a robot acts as an extension of our Upper East Side, NYC orthopedic surgeon’s eyes and hands in a minimally invasive knee surgery to replace an arthritic knee. The robotics help our knee replacement surgeons operate more precisely through a smaller incision.
The ultimate goal of knee replacement surgery is to decrease pain and restore proper knee function. Although total knee replacement (also called “arthroplasty”) is an excellent option for older patients with osteoarthritis of the knee, other surgical options exist such as robotic knee replacement surgery.
Am I a good candidate for robotic-assisted partial knee replacement surgery?
You are probably a good candidate for robotic knee replacement surgery if you are an adult with early to mid-stage arthritis in no more than two of the following compartments of the knee: Medial (inner) Patellofemoral (top) Lateral (outer). Specifically, the ideal candidate for robotic knee replacement surgery has mid-stage osteoarthritis, with significant damage confined to a specific part of the knee. Dr. Jonathan Glashow, our top NYC knee surgery specialist orthopedic surgeon can discuss with you if you are indeed a good candidate.
For patients in need or knee replacement surgery (partial or unicompartmental): robotic knee replacement surgery is a state-of-the-art alternative to total knee replacement. As one of the least invasive arthoscopic knee surgeries performed, this procedure offers a smaller incision, less scarring and blood loss, a shorter hospital stay (the majority of our patients go home the same day) and the ability to return to everyday activities much sooner than with traditional knee replacement surgeries.
