Robotic Knee Replacement Surgery
Millions of people suffer knee joint pain from arthritis that gradually worsens over time. While there are cutting-edge options to slow the progression of arthritis on the knee joints, there is not a cure for this disease. When the joint becomes compromised and other treatments cannot control pain or improve mobility, knee replacement procedures may be recommended. Jonathan L. Glashow, MD orthopedic surgery and sports injury center performs advanced robotic knee replacement surgery at our Miami, FL, facility.
Knee replacement surgery is used to overcome cartilage and bone damage from arthritis and other knee injuries. Deterioration of the joint can result in chronic pain and restricted mobility. There are many different types of knee replacement options, from partial knee joint reconstruction and unilateral procedures to total knee replacement surgery. Dr. Glashow and his team offer cutting-edge options for all types of knee replacement procedures, including robotic knee replacement surgery.
What Is Robotic Knee Replacement?
Robotics in orthopedic and other surgical procedures have made significant contributions to the success of these surgeries. In knee replacement surgery, robotic-assisted procedures offer a myriad of benefits for the patient. These surgeries utilize advanced technology with robotic arms and surgical tools that are controlled by the surgeon. The mechanics of the robotic system remove the risk of human error and improve the capability of the surgeon when performing intricate surgical procedures.
Robotic knee replacement surgery can be used for a few different types of joint restoration procedures. This type of surgery is performed through small incisions with fewer risks to the patient. There is a smaller risk of complications with a high success rate, especially when performed by a highly experienced and skilled knee orthopedic surgeon such as Dr. Glashow.
