Robotic Assisted Surgery for Partial and Total Knee Replacement

Robotic Assisted Surgery for Partial and Total Knee Replacement

Knee joints can wear over time, becoming stiff and painful due to degeneration or other health issues. A partial or total knee replacement procedure can repair this joint, increasing your comfort and mobility once you’ve recovered from the surgery.

At Twin Palm Orthopedics, located in Ocala, Florida, our experienced team of orthopedic surgeons uses Mako® robotic-arm-assisted technology to improve the knee replacement experience and outcomes for new and existing patients. 

Learn about all the ways that you can benefit from knee replacement surgery using this state-of-the-art robotic surgery system combined with our skills and orthopedic knowledge.

What is robotic surgery?

Robotic surgery sounds like something out of a science-fiction movie, but in reality, robotic surgery techniques are utilized by today’s medical providers to minimize invasiveness and maximize precision.

Our team at Twin Palm Orthopedics uses a precision surgical arm to maneuver with accuracy and precision. The robotic arm attaches to a multi-screen computer device with high-definition imaging capabilities. Our human hands always control the Mako system, but with the added benefit of computer enhancement of imaging, steadiness, and targeting precision.

The high degree of precision available through robotic assisted surgery means that your partial or total knee replacement procedure is as minimally invasive as possible. Your provider uses the smallest incisions to complete your surgery.

The benefits of robotic surgery

When you receive robotic assisted surgery for a partial or total knee replacement, you benefit in multiple ways.

Your surgery outcomes are optimized due to the high degree of precision and accuracy possible through robotics. Improved control increases our ability to target exactly the area desired for surgical replacement.

And, with minimally invasive surgery techniques, your risk of bleeding or complications, as well as the length of time you’ll need for recovery after your total or partial knee replacement procedure, decreases.

Once you’ve recovered after your partial or total knee replacement surgery, minimally invasive robotic assisted techniques mean that you’ll deal with less scarring. Your joint implant feels better after minimally invasive surgery than it would after a more extensive procedure, and you have a lower risk of revision in the years to come.
