Overview

A New Era in Treating Advanced Knee Osteoarthritis: Robotic-Assisted Surgery

Knee pain due to osteoarthritis (OA) is a common condition affecting about 28.7% of Indians, according to a study.

Non-surgical treatments for knee OA include weight loss, exercise, physiotherapy, pain medications, and non-steroidal, anti-inflammatory drugs under medical supervision.

In more severe cases & after conservative treatments have failed, knee replacement surgery may be necessary.

Robotic-Assisted Knee Replacement Surgery
In recent years, knee replacement surgery for advanced osteoarthritis has undergone a significant transformation with the introduction of robotic technology. This technology utilizes robotics and computer-assisted guidance to enhance the precision, accuracy, and safety of the surgery.

Traditional knee replacement surgery involves manually removing the worn-out cartilage and bone from the knee joint with hand-held instruments. This the manual technique has a slight chance of human imprecision, inconsistent implant positioning, and longer recovery times.

In Robotic - Assisted knee replacement surgery, the robotic arm, guided by the surgeon, performs precise cuts and ensures more accurate implant placement and improved alignment, resulting in a more natural and long-lasting joint function.

Benefits of Robotic-Assisted Surgery
Greater Accuracy and Precision
Robotic arms eliminate hand tremors and offer unparalleled precision during bone preparation and implant placement.

More accurate alignment of the knee joint, promoting natural movement and joint stability.
Minimized bone removal, preserving healthy tissue and potentially extending the lifespan of the implant.
      2. Minimally Invasive Approach

The robotic arm can access the joint through a smaller precise incision. This Leads to

Less blood loss
Less tissue damage, minimizing post-operative pain and promoting faster recovery.
Reduced length of hospital stays & leading to improved cosmetic outcomes.
This technique also allows for greater preservation of the patient's healthy bone and tissue, and longer implant survivorship is crucial for younger patients who may require future revisions.
3. Improved Pain Management

 With less tissue trauma and precise implant placement, robotic knee replacement can contribute to

Reduced post-operative pain compared to traditional surgery.
Faster return to daily activities due to quicker healing and improved mobility.
4. Better Implant Placement

The robotic technology’s precision ensures optimal alignment and stability of the implant components, resulting in 

More natural feel and function of the new knee joint.
Reduced risk of implant loosening or failure in the long term.
5. Customized Surgical Procedure

Robotic technology allows for

Pre-operative planning based on your unique anatomy, leads to a customized surgical approach.
Real-time adjustments during surgery to fine-tune the implant placement for optimal outcomes.


In conclusion, for those advised surgery, robotic-assisted knee replacement surgery is a clinically validated option that enhances the accuracy, precision, and safety compared to manual surgery, enabling less pain, and faster recovery, with more natural and long-lasting joints.
