Robotic Knee Replacement

"Advanced technology of robotic-assisted knee replacement presents key benefits such as quicker recovery, enhanced mobility, and effective pain management."

Osteoarthritis stands as a prevalent degenerative joint disease characterized by the progressive wear and tear of knee joint cartilage, attributed to either aging or trauma, ultimately leading to a distressing joint condition. When severe knee osteoarthritis culminates in debilitating pain that impedes daily activities and walking, total knee replacement surgery emerges as a highly favored, effective, and safe treatment option. 

In the assessment of a patient's candidacy for knee replacement surgery, a comprehensive evaluation is conducted, delving into both medical and social facets of the individual. Upon establishing the suitability and benefits of knee replacement surgery for the patient, the method of surgical intervention becomes a pivotal decision point, weighing the merits of conventional techniques against the advancements offered by robotic-assisted surgery.

Robot-assisted joint replacement surgery, a technology that has progressively gained traction since its global debut in 2015 and further widespread adoption in Turkey from 2020 onwards, presents an array of advantages. These benefits stem from its capacity to undertake virtual surgical planning preoperatively, facilitate real-time adjustments during surgery to accommodate patient-specific knee joint dynamics, and execute these meticulously crafted plans with unparalleled precision through robotic arm assistance.

The journey of robot-assisted knee replacement surgery starts with creating a virtual surgical blueprint derived from three-dimensional models of leg bones, meticulously crafted from specialized tomography images. These models undergo patient-specific processing within a computerized environment to determine the optimal placement location for the implants. This plan is revised during the surgery considering surgically encountered dynamic factors like joint-specific ligament balance and range of motion before being converted to robotic program code. Under the expert supervision of the surgeon, this robotic code guides the robotic arm with unparalleled accuracy to precisely position the prosthesis onto the bone.  

The unparalleled advantages of robot-assisted knee replacement surgeries are particularly noteworthy in patients presenting with significant knee and leg deformities arising from trauma or developmental factors, extreme obesity, and short stature. For individuals with such characteristics, robot-assisted knee replacement surgery offers a transformative edge over conventional approaches, assuring faster recovery times, enhanced mobility, and substantial alleviation of pain.
