Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Total Knee Replacement
The knee is made up of the femur (thighbone), the tibia (shinbone) and patella (kneecap). The two menisci, the soft cartilage between the femur and tibia, serve as a cushion and helps absorb shock during motion.
Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Partial Knee Replacement
Robotic assisted partial knee surgery is an innovative alternative to the conventional surgical procedure to treat degenerative knee diseases such as osteoarthritis.
Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Total Hip Replacement
Robotic total hip replacement is a minimally invasive procedure where your surgeon is assisted by a robotic system to perform a total hip replacement surgery.
Minimally Invasive Hip Replacement - Direct Anterior Approach
Robotic assisted hip surgery is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that involves the use of a specialized robotic system to remove the damaged parts of a hip joint and replace them with an artificial prosthesis or implant.
Am I a Candidate for Robotic Assisted Surgery?
Robotic surgery is a minimally invasive surgery widely employed in the field of medicine to perform surgeries related to general surgery, gynecology, urology, cardiothoracic, neurosurgery, and others.
Many of the complex surgical procedures are performed with the da Vinci® robotic system. The da Vinci® surgical system consists of a surgeon’s computer console, a patient-side cart with four interactive robotic arms, a high-performance vision system (3D camera) and miniaturized EndoWrist surgical instruments.
The most common indications for robotic surgery include any cancerous and non-cancerous tumors of the head, spine, lung, prostate, liver and pancreas.
Some of the benefits of robotic surgery include:
- Minimal trauma to the surrounding tissues
- Faster recovery time
- Less post-operative pain
- Minimal scarring
- Shorter hospitalization
- Reduced blood less and need for transfusion
Most people are candidates for Robotic surgery, however, not every patient is an appropriate candidate for a minimally invasive procedure. Robotic surgery is contraindicated in patients with bleeding disorders, severe obesity, pregnancy, cardiopulmonary diseases such as COPD, cirrhosis, bowel obstruction and adhesions from previous abdominal surgery.
The decision to undergo robotic surgery depends on your particular situation and your doctor’s preference. Discuss with your doctor about all treatment options suitable for you.
