Health Check: Robotic total knee replacements
OUTH KINGSTOWN, R.I. (WJAR) — A South County Hospital physician is the first in the world certified to do total knee replacements using a robot. Sixty-five total knee replacements have been done since June using this advanced technology at that hospital.Read More
Difficult Cases in Robotic Arm-Assisted Total Knee Arthroplasty: A Case Series.
Sagittal deformity of the knee is commonly corrected to neutral biomechanical axis (±3 degrees) during total knee arthroplasty (TKA), which is a widely accepted goal. Recent advances in surgical technology have made it possible to accurately plan and fulfill these goals. One of these is robotic-assisted TKA, which has been noted to help increase accuracy and precision of restoring a neutral mechanical axis.Read More
Coronal Correction for Severe Deformity Using Robotic-Assisted Total Knee Arthroplasty.
Although robotic-assisted total knee arthroplasty (TKA) has the potential to accurately reproduce neutral alignment, it is still unclear if this correction is attainable in patients who have severe varus or valgus deformities. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to assess a single surgeon's experience with correcting coronal deformities using the robotic-assisted TKA device.Read More
The Learning Curve Associated with Robotic Total Knee Arthroplasty.
As with most new surgical technologies, there is an associated learning curve with robotic-assisted total knee arthroplasty (TKA) before surgeons can expect ease of use to be similar to that of manual cases.Read More
