Robotic Partial Knee Replacement Surgery is the best surgery to help the patients have a pain or problem in the knee due to a portion of knee being damaged, in this surgery only that damaged portion is replaced while conserving the ligament and the unaffected cartilage of the knee.
Patients with unicompartmental knee arthritis have cartilage degeneration in only one section or compartment of the knee.
It is also called as unicompartmental Knee replacement or Unicompartmental Knee arthroplasty.
The Robotic Partial Knee Replacement Surgery today is considered not only for patients above 60 having ligaments at good shape but to the younger patients who are suffering from knee pain or other symptoms that require surgery.
The partial knee replacement is less surgery, it has often been reported to have an easier, quicker, more complete recovery and greater satisfaction than a full knee replacement. Complications during surgery like blood loss, transfusion and blood clots tend to be less with a partial replacement; long-term studies show the lifespan of partial knee replacement components is as long as the lifespan of components used in a total knee replacement.
As in the Robotic Partial Knee Replacement Surgery only the partial knee tissues that were damaged will be replaced, you will be likely to be heart by meniscal tears and the progression of the arthritis in the rest of the knee. In case the Partial Knee Replacement surgery fails, the Robotic Knee Replacement Surgery for Total Knee Replacement can be done without any difficulty and with great success.
The outcome of the Partial Knee Replacement Surgery using robotic arm are highly successful, but before the surgery one must discuss the benefits and the risk involved with your Best Orthopedic Robotic Surgeon, as both of the procedures are replacements and you should follow the activity restrictions your surgeon asks you not to perform. Neither procedure is designed to hold up to the rigors of high-impact sports. If you take care of your total or partial knee replacement it will help you to live pain free independent life.
Before the Robotic Partial Knee Replacement Surgery using LEO-2 , the Orthopedic Robotic Surgeon and the team will capture the digital computed tomography (CT) scans of your knee.
The digital CT will help the Robotic Surgeon and the Robotic Arm to determine the exact position where to place the knee implant, the surgeon works in the predefined three-dimensional "envelope" of space with Real-time video images during the surgery provide visual reinforcement, which helps surgeons navigate hard-to-see areas and the robotic arm will help surgeon to operate in that predefined space only ensuring no chance of an instrument slipping and injuring adjacent tissues.
Robotic Guided Joint replacements is the future due to the precision that robotic-assisted surgery gives in Partial Knee Replacement Surgery & Total Knee Replacement Surgery.
