Robotic Orthopedic Surgery
Robotic Orthopedic Surgery is used for partial and total knee replacements and total hip replacements.
During joint replacement procedures, the operating surgeon cuts away damaged bone and cartilage of the patient and replaces it with artificial components. These components are made of:
Knee replacement - It involves the entire joint to be replaced. In case only one section of the knee has been damaged, the operating and consulting surgeons can plan and replace the damaged portion of the knee joint only, which is called a partial knee replacement.
Total hip replacement - The hip is a ball-and-socket joint. Both sections of the hip joint are removed first and then replaced in a total hip replacement procedure.
