What is Robotic Orthopedic Surgery?
Robotic Surgery (robotically-assisted surgery) is a minimally evasive procedure that aims to increase the capabilities of surgeons for performing open surgeries. Haptic (surgeon guided) and autonomous are the two robotic systems. The other type of surgery is passive surgery systems which has become popular recently with the surgeons. The surgery enhances the precision of the surgeons and uses surgical robots during the surgery like the active systems. They prepare bony surfaces in orthopedic surgery with greater precision.
Advantages of Robotic Surgery
Hip replacement and knee replacement procedures allow for a number of benefits like-
You may not be able to control every situation and its outcome, but you can control your attitude and how you deal with it.
GOD didn’t add another day in your life because you needed it, he added it because someone out there needs you.
The most beautiful people we have known are those who have known defeat, known suffering, known struggle, known loss, and have found their way out of the depths. These persons have an appreciation, a sensitivity, and an understanding of life that fills them with compassion, gentleness, and a deep loving concern. Beautiful people do not just happen.
Dear GOD, if today I lose my hope please remind me that your plans are better than my Dream.....
Robotic Hip Surgery
Hip replacement is a surgical procedure in which diseased parts of the hip joint are removed and replaced with artificial new parts - a metal cup to replace the hip socket and a metal femoral stem to connect the hip to the leg.
The persistent hip pain for than 3 months can lead to a permanent problem. Hip impingement, torn labrum and osteoarthritis or arthritis are the most possible causes of this problem. The various surgeries such as total hip replacement, arthroscopic hip surgery and hip resurfacing surgery, can be performed to remove the hip pain. The most successful orthopedic surgery is the modern robotic surgery.
The aim of hip arthroscopic surgery is to lessen the inflammation and pain in the hip joint that have been caused by wear, arthritis or injury. The two surgical procedures that are specially designed to repair the damaged parts or portions of the hip joint are Arthroscopic hip surgery and Total hip replacement surgery.
The precision of robotic-assisted surgery allows for:
Total Hip Replacement Surgery
The most common cause of chronic hip pain and disability is arthritis. Osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and traumatic arthritis are the most common forms of this disease.
In a total hip replacement (also called total hip arthroplasty), the damaged bone and cartilage is removed and replaced with prosthetic components.
Robotic Hip Arthroscopy
This minimally invasive surgery is performed when there is a hip pain coming either from other tissues or damaged cartilage around the hip joint. The aim is to remove the debris from the hip joint and thereby also reducing the inflammation. The surgery can also ease painful symptoms of a large number of problems which is damaging the articular cartilage, soft tissues surrounding the hip joint or labrum.
Robotic Knee Replacement Surgery
Candidates for total knee replacement may suffer from:
The surgery is performed to relieve the pain caused by chronic knee arthritis or knee injury. The surgical treatment of joint replacement (reconstructive surgery) is performed to ease the joint pain that has been caused by damaged to bone and cartilage. Knee surgery options are-
The knee resurfacing and replacement surgeries are primarily performed to remove the worn out surfaces of the knee with the help of latest and advanced implant. These are basically suggested for the problem of knee arthritis.
Robotic Knee Arthroscopy - With this surgery, the damaged knee is repaired with the help of minimum invasive procedure. In the surgical process, the surgeon uses fiber optic cameras and long tools to study the joint damage. The surgery involves few incisions which also decrease the recovery period. The loose bodies are removed from the knee joint and thereby repairing the damaged and torn cartilage and ligaments.
Makoplasty Partial Knee Resurfacing - This advanced procedure involves a robotic arm to assist in preparing and planning the knee to employ knee replacement implants. The procedure of Makoplasty can relieve the pain of mid-stage knee Osteoarthritis. Partial knee surfacing (unicompartmental surgery) focuses on the damaged parts of the knee and helps in providing a normal knee. The healthy cartilage, ligaments and bones are very well preserved. The surgery relieves the knee pain, makes the knee strong, offers natural knee function with better motion and alignment along with improved balance.
Total Knee Arthroplasty (Total Knee Replacement) - The serious degenerative ailments of the knee joint are treated with the help of this surgery. The advanced artificial joints are made to mimic the knee’s gliding and rolling motion. With a large number of options, the surgeon modifies the patient’s joint according to age, activity level and body.
