Robotic surgery for knees is an advanced form of orthopedic care that uses robots to perform complex hip surgery and provide precisely placed hip replacements, resulting in improved patient outcomes.

In this groundbreaking approach, the surgeon works with the robot to perform the surgery. The robot acts as an extension of the surgeon's hands, allowing them to make small incisions and place custom prostheses with unparalleled precision. This minimizes complications, shortens recovery times and provides clients with high-quality orthopedic care without waiting lists. With robotic surgery for knees, the future of orthopedic care is moving ever closer.

Definition and operation

What is robotic surgery?

  • Robotic surgery is a form of digital healthcare technology used in the medical field, specifically in orthopedic surgery.
  • It uses advanced robotic systems to perform precise and accurate operations.

How does robotic surgery for knees work?

  • In knee surgery, the Mako robot is often used, such as at St. Antonius Hospital.
  • The Mako robot assists the surgeon during the placement of hip replacements and treatments for hip and knee osteoarthritis.
  • Using 3D imaging technology, the doctor accurately plans each step of the operation, leaving less room for error.

Benefits and results

What are the benefits of robotic surgery for knees?

  • Precision: Robots such as the Mako can make extremely precise incisions and ensure optimal implant placement during knee replacement surgery.
  • Faster recovery: Robotic surgery allows patients to recover faster and return to activity after knee surgery.
  • Fewer complications: Robotic digital care technology minimizes the risk of infection and other complications in hip and knee replacement surgery.

What are the results of robotic surgery in knee replacement surgery?

  • Improved mobility: Patients who have undergone robot-assisted knee replacement often experience significant improvements in their mobility and quality of life.
  • Long-term results: Robotic surgery has been shown to provide sustainable long-term results, giving patients long-term benefits from their new hip replacements or implants.

Why choose robotic surgery?

Precision and accuracy are the watchwords in robotic surgery for knees. Advanced technology allows the robotic surgeon to operate with unparalleled precision, minimizing the risk of error and achieving a better outcome. This means your knee treatment is more effective and safer than ever before.

In addition, robotic surgery offers shorter recovery time and fewer complications. By using minimal incisions, the robotic surgeon can promote faster healing, leading to a faster recovery process after surgery. Additionally, the use of robots during the procedure minimizes the risk of infection or other postoperative complications.

With robotic surgery, you are guaranteed personalized, high-quality care without waiting lists. The combination of human expertise with advanced technology allows us to provide quick access to orthopedic treatments without long waiting times. At our clinic, your comfort and well-being are our focus, striving for optimal results while meeting all of your individual needs.

Precision and accuracy

Advanced technologies for precise implant placement are making robotic surgery a new standard in orthopedic care. Using precise 3D images, doctors can plan implant positions down to the millimeter and make real-time adjustments during surgery. This reduces the risk of errors and improves the durability and functionality of the placed implant.

Minimal damage to surrounding tissues and nerves is an important aspect of robotic surgery in knee surgery. Automated precision technologies allow cuts to be made smaller, resulting in less bleeding, scarring and pain after surgery. In addition, the use of robots also minimizes the risk of damage to surrounding structures such as muscles, tendons and nerves.

Optimization of alignment and biomechanics plays a critical role in knee surgery to ensure long-term successful outcomes. Robotic systems provide real-time feedback on angular measurements, cartilage thickness and other vital parameters during the procedure, allowing physicians to make better decisions to achieve optimal alignment. This can prevent unnecessary wear or complications in the future.

We have now seen how robotic surgery uses precision technologies to place implants more accurately, minimize damage to surrounding tissues and optimize knee alignment. In the next section, we will discuss how robotic surgery can lead to shorter recovery times and fewer complications after surgery.

How does robotic surgery for knees work?

Surgery begins with detailed preparation and planning. The surgeon uses advanced imaging techniques to map the exact location and extent of the injury. Using this information, robotic arms are precisely programmed to make the necessary incisions and remove the damaged tissue.

During surgery, the robotic surgeon performs each step under the supervision of the orthopedic surgeon. The precision and stability provided by robots minimize the risk of human error. This leads to better outcomes, faster recovery and fewer complications for patients who want to receive high-quality orthopedic care without waiting lists.

Preparation and planning

Pre-operative consultation: Before robot-assisted knee surgery takes place, you will undergo a comprehensive pre-operative consultation. During this consultation, your orthopedic surgeon will review your medical history and order additional tests to assess your health status.

Diagnostic imaging: To create an accurate treatment plan, advanced diagnostic imaging technologies are used. These scans and images provide detailed information about the structure of your knee joint, allowing our specialists to decide which robot-assisted techniques are most appropriate for your specific situation.

Personalized treatment plan: After collecting all the necessary data during the pre-operative phase, our team of experts will work together to create a personalized treatment plan for you. This plan takes into account your unique anatomy and condition, with the goal of achieving optimal results during surgery and the recovery process afterwards.
