Robotic-assisted surgery is a minimally invasive procedure where your surgeon is assisted by a robotic system to perform the surgery.
The robotic system consists of a surgeon’s console, robotic arms, a high-performance vision system and special surgical instruments. A computed tomography (CT) scan is taken before the surgery to create a 3D model of the affected hip or knee joint. This is interpreted by the system, which accurately guides your surgeon. Unlike a traditional surgery, this procedure is performed through small incisions. The 3D camera provides your surgeon with a magnified view of the operating area. Your surgeon sits at a console and controls the movement of the robotic arms holding the special surgical instruments. The movements of your surgeon’s hands are translated by the robotic system into precise movements of the miniaturized instruments that are held by the robotic arms.
