One of the most common causes of knee pain is arthritis (osteoarthritis) in the knee. Nowadays, there is no definitive treatment for knee calcification yet. Depending on the condition of arthritis in the knee joint, treatment methods such as pain medication, physical therapy, knee brace, injection into the joint are tried. Despite these treatment methods, there is no relief and if your pain continues to increase gradually, knee replacement surgery (knee arthroplasty) may become a necessity.
As with any surgery, it may not be easy for the patient to decide to have a knee replacement surgery. “Will the surgery relieve my knee pain? Would recovery be difficult and painful after surgery? When can I return to my daily life? Will I be able to use my knee prosthesis for a long time? " It is natural to have questions and concerns suchlike. When you decide to have surgery, achieving the best results, experiencing a painless and rapid recovery process, and being able to use the prosthesis safely for many years is the most natural expectation of every patient. Therefore, it is important to make the best, most accurate, and most reliable decision by researching surgery options.
The good news is that advancing technology continues to make many contributions to healthcare. The New Generation Robotic-Assisted Knee Surgery System, which is one of the latest technologies in orthopedic surgery, provides unique advantages to patients in knee prosthesis surgery (knee arthroplasty) before, during, and after surgery. The solution that removes the fears and worries about knee replacement surgery is provided by a new generation robotic-assisted surgery system. So, how does the Robotic-Assisted Surgery System which is a new generation technology, provide you with benefits in knee prosthesis (knee arthroplasty) surgery?
• CT (Tomography) is not required.
In order to perform the surgical planning of the knee prosthesis surgery in the first robotic-assisted systems, it was necessary to perform computerized knee tomography (CT) before the surgery. Computed tomography is a high radiation imaging method, such that one computed tomography scan corresponds to approximately 100-200 chest x-rays. The dependence of the old version of robotic-assisted systems on the radiological image caused patients to undergo to be exposed to additional radiation before knee replacement surgery. However, with the latest technology, New Generation Robotic-Assisted Knee Arthroplasty Surgery System, the need for tomography before surgery has been removed.
The new generation robotic-assisted knee surgery system has been produced with a radiological image-independent technology. Thanks to the new generation robotic-assisted knee surgery system, without the need for tomography, live information about your knee structure is collected during the surgery and 3-dimensional images of your joint are created on the computer screen with this data. Thus, the surgery is performed with more precise information and it is safer for your health since you do not need to be exposed to too much radiation.
Thanks to the new generation robotic-assisted knee surgery system, while knee arthroplasty is performed, 3-dimensional images of your joint are created simultaneously during the surgery. You can think of this as watching the inside of the knee joint, the damaged area, the places that need to be repaired, and the possible results of the procedures performed in the course of surgery. In this way, your doctor will have information about every detail during the surgery and can plan each surgical step in detail. Due to these plans, precise calculations are made with robotic-assisted surgery technology and the prosthesis is placed in the most appropriate way to the shape and natural movement of your knee joint. So much so that the robotic handpiece used by your doctor during the surgical procedure prevents unintentional going beyond planning and eliminates the margin of error. The new generation robotic-assisted surgery system allows the most accurate determination of sensitive stages such as bone incision rates, places to be incised, places where prosthesis parts will be placed, prosthesis parts to each other and to the knee.
Most of patients worry that the recovery period after knee replacement surgery is too painful and long. However, robotic-assisted surgery technology enables even the most delicate procedures to be performed with the highest accuracy and precision in knee prosthesis surgery. Thus, healthy tissues are protected, smaller surgical incisions are made and the prosthesis is placed in your knee in the most appropriate way. Through, you will not only have a much more painless and easy recovery after the surgery, but also you can return to your daily life more rapidly and more easily. After the next generation robotic-assisted knee replacement surgery, patients usually stand up and walk on the same day of surgery.
Another advantage of the knee arthroplasty performed with the new generation robotic-assisted surgery is that the prosthesis is placed in the most appropriate way for each patient's own anatomical structure. This situation is one of the important factors determining the life of the prosthesis. Because the more accurately and harmoniously the prosthetic parts are placed in your knee, the less the risk of wear and tear on the prosthesis over the years. Thanks to robotic-assisted surgery, it is possible to use knee prosthesis for many years by paying attention to your doctor's recommendations and your lifestyle after surgery.
