Surgical Robots the Cutting Edge of Knee Replacements

Jan 30, 2020

If you’ve been told you might need a hip or knee replacement, it’s more than likely you’ve researched the recommended surgical procedure, and this may have included information about the option of robotic surgery.

Technology has evolved into orthopaedic surgery with positive results. Potential benefits of robotic-assisted surgery include:

  • Shorter hospitalisation
  • Reduction in pain and stiffness
  • Faster recovery time and return to normal activities
  • Reduced blood loss
  • Minimal scarring
  • Improved precision and accuracy

Whilst there is still the need or preference for some patients to undergo knee replacement surgery via the conventional method, it’s worth researching the advantages of robotic-assisted surgery and discussing with your orthopaedic surgeon if it is right for you.

A good surgical outcome regardless of the method always begins long before with good pre-operative planning and management.
