Computer and robotic-assisted hip and knee joint replacement surgery using the Mako SmartRobotics™ system are performed by OSMI orthopedic surgeons. The system improves the accuracy and success of hip and knee joint replacement surgeries by utilizing sophisticated 3D CT-based planning software. This 3D modern technology allows your surgeon to know more about your anatomy to create a personalized joint replacement surgical plan with improved clinical accuracy and better patient outcomes. The latest advancement in orthopedic surgery is transforming the way joint replacement procedures are performed.
Comparison of Robotic Assisted Vs Conventional Joint Replacement
Benefits of the Robotic-assisted Hip and Knee Joint Replacement
- Anatomical and surgical accuracy – more accurate placement of the prosthetic implant with computer 3D modeling
- Improved joint motion and less pain – patients describe the feeling of having a more natural joint motion
- Decreased implant dislocation – preservation of healthy bone and soft tissue leading to a faster recovery.
- Better Patient satisfaction scores
Robotic Assisted Total Knee Replacement
Robotic assisted total knee replacement is minimally invasive, thus allowing patients a faster recovery and they often go home after surgery rather than being admitted to the hospital.
Robotic Assisted Partial Knee Replacement
Robotic assisted partial knee replacement is a great option for patients that only have arthritis in one part of the knee. recovery is usually easier and faster than the total knee replacement. Speak with your physician to see if you are a candidate.
Robotic Assisted Hip Replacement
Robotic assisted total hip replacement is minimally invasive, thus allowing patients a faster recovery and they often go home after surgery rather than being admitted to the hospital. Total hip replacement can treat patients with degenerative joint disease that causes significant pain and limits function.
Robotic-assisted surgery and muscle-sparing approaches to hip replacement are designed to minimize the impact of surgery on your soft tissue and bone. This allows patients to recover and return to normal activities faster.
Complex Surgical Revision Joint Replacement of the Knee and Hip
Revision knee or hip replacement is a more complicated surgery when compared to the initial joint replacement surgery. When implant failure occurs, another surgery may be needed to replace the failed implant, known as joint revision joint replacement surgery. Patients undergoing joint revision surgery require extensive pre-operative planning, utilization of specialized implants and tools, and mastery of difficult surgical techniques to accomplish good results. Dr. Nicholas Martin dedicated a year of his subspecialty training to taking care of these complex joint replacement issues.
