It is a technology and surgical method that enables planning with the 3D map which is created before the operation of the patient , enabling to choose the most suitable replacement angle and size of implants for patients, guiding the surgeon throughout the surgery in line with the surgical plan.

Healthy tissues are protected with robotic surger by targeting the damaged part of the bone. The robot does not even allow a millimeter error to ensure safe surgery.

Data is collected before the robotic knee replacement surgery, and a 3D map of the patient’s knee is created. Compared to other robotic surgery techniques, this technique does not require patient tomography. The patient is not exposed to radiation from tomography.

The robotic arm guides the surgeon according to the previously created plan to establish the location of the prosthesis. Thus, the most accurate placement angle of the prosthesis is created. In addition, only damaged tissues are targeted and healthy tissues are protected.

Throughout the operation, the robot guides the surgeon and prevent to leave the plan which is previously created. Even the minimum error is not allowed in this way.

My aunt had a knee replacement surgery on both her knees and we've seen an incredible progress eventhough it's only been 2 weeks. Doctor is amazing, hospitality is another level, nurses and all procedures are highly professional. As someone who has been to many big hospitals in Turkey, I must say this one is by far the best cause they're health-oriented as opposed to money oriented. Definitely recommend it to anyone especially for orthopedic surgery and physiotherapy.
