Robotic-Assisted Knee Replacement

Knee arthritis can cause significant pain and disability which negatively impacts a person’s quality of life.  If non-surgical treatment does not alleviate these symptoms, a knee replacement may be indicated.

Knee replacement can be a life-changing operation that relieves pain and improves function. Recently, technological advancements with robotic surgery have been developed to improve the accuracy and outcomes of knee replacement.

Dr. Jack Steele, Orthopaedic Surgeon and Adult Reconstruction specialist at Towson Orthopaedic Associates, is one of several surgeons at Towson Orthopaedic Associates who are specially trained on this new technology and performs a large number of robotic-assisted total knee replacements. He explains how it works below.

What is robotic-assisted knee replacement?

Robotic-assisted surgical technology allows surgeons to provide you with a personalized surgical plan that is tailored to your individual anatomy. During your knee replacement surgery, your knee is mapped and registered with a robot to determine your knee’s individual anatomy and alignment. Surgeons then use the robotic system to develop a surgical plan individualized for you based on this information. Then, a robotic arm is used to make very accurate bone cuts that allow surgeons to enact that surgical plan and implant the knee components in the correct position for your knee.

The goal of any knee replacement is to result in a stable knee with good range of motion. Robotic technology allows surgeons to achieve these outcomes more accurately and less invasively. This can lead to a faster recovery and more consistent outcomes.

Am I a candidate for robotic knee surgery?

Most patients who are indicated for a knee replacement are candidates for robotic-assisted knee replacement. If you are interested in this technology, please contact Towson Orthopaedic Associates to schedule an appointment to see if the robotic assisted knee replacement is the right option for you.
