Our joint replacement specialists provide individualized care using the very latest in medical technology. For knee replacement, we offer robotic assistance using a breakthrough technology – the NAVIO Surgical System. We chose NAVIO™ because it is accurate and allows us to individualize the procedure to each patient we see.
The Robotics-assisted NAVIO™ handpiece:
How does the NAVIO™ system help perform knee replacement?
The system works in conjunction with our surgeon’s skilled hands to achieve the accurate positioning of the knee replacement components based on each patient’s unique anatomy. This added level of accuracy can help improve the function, feel and potential longevity of the knee implant.
How does it work?
Through an advanced computer program, the NAVIO™ system provides robotic assistance that relays precise information about your knee to a robotics-assisted handpiece used by our surgeons during the procedure. By collecting patient-specific data, boundaries are established for the handpiece so we can remove the damaged surfaces of your knee, balance your joint, and position the implant with greater accuracy.
