Robotic arm assisted joint replacement

Several types of joint replacement may be done using a robotic arm. The surgeon is in control of the robotic arm the entire time, but the robot often allows for extra precision.

The details of the robotic arm vary depending on the system used and the joint being replaced. Often, there is imaging such as a CT scan done before surgery. The scan is placed into the computer system associated with the robotic arm and the surgery is planned.

During the surgery, guides around the joint orient the robotic arm to your body. The robotic arm guides the surgeon’s tools to the precise locations needed. Less tissue is disturbed, resulting in faster healing.
