Accurate Implant Placement
Our physicians use the NAVIO◊ system to perform robotics-assisted partial knee replacement. They chose this technology because it allows them to individualize each patient's knee replacement surgery, and use robotic assistance for accurate results.1
With the NAVIO◊ system, there is no special pre-operative preparation or post-operative recovery protocol. The NAVIO◊ system does not perform the procedure; rather it assists the surgeon by providing accuracy - crucial to the success of the surgery.
Partial Knee Replacement, Compared To Total Knee Replacement, Offers2-10:
- Improved patient satisfaction - 19% of total knee patients do not have their expectations met - 94% of partial knee replacement patients have their expectations met
- Lower Post Operative Pain.
- Lower Risk of Complications
- Improved Range of Motion Partial knee replacement has been shown to result in a greater range of motion over total knee replacement
- Knee Feels More Normal
- Shorter Hospital Stay
- Faster Recovery Time
- Minimally Invasive Surgical Techniques
- More Options in the Future. Partial knee replacement offer more options in the future, where osteoarthritis can advance and further treatment, such as a total knee replacement may be needed
- Smaller Implants
- Most Insurance Plans Cover partial knee replacement. Call your insurance provider to verify coverage
- Less Removal of Bone and Cartilage
- No Removal Of Ligaments
What Is My Next Step?
Ask Your Surgeon:
- Is My Knee Pain Caused by Osteoarthritis?
- Am I a candidate for NAVIO◊ robotics-assisted partial knee replacement?
- How does my age, lifestyle, and overall health affect my treatment options?
