Knee replacement surgery is a very complicated surgery. With the passage of time technology makes the surgeries easier. Robotic technology enhances the surgery process for knee. Although, knee surgeons are considered as the most capable and experienced medical surgeons in this world but robotic technology allows them to do the knee surgeries in more efficient way. Robotic technology improves the skills of the surgeons as well that eventually good news for the knee patients. Knee replacement has become a normal treatment after the addition of robotic technology in knee replacement surgery. Due to addition of this robotic technology patient may over some major pains.
However, robotic technology does not perform the job of a surgeon but it adds on the efficiency during the operation and overcome all the errors that may be caused by humans. Robotic technology initially, scans the affected joint or area of the bone. Surgeon uses that scan report and creates the 3D image of the area that allows robotic knee replacement specialist to get to know the condition of the joint so, surgeon can make the blue print of the surgery and then execute it as per given details and CT scans. CT scan actually provides the clear picture of the knee joint. Robot technology eliminates the human errors that can be occurred during surgery. Robotic technology helps surgeons to ensures the correct positioning and placement of the implants. Robotic technology does not allow the surgeon to exceed from his/her dimensions that decreases the chance of errors.
Pros of using robotic technology in knee replacement:
The core benefit of using robotic technology in operate is that it refers surgeon towards small incisions that would be beneficial for patient. Due to robotic technology everything has already been measured and planned. Large incision may cause more complications in the surgery so, small incisions are also beneficial for the surgeons. There is less chances of blood loss in small incisions. Furthermore, robotic technology restricts doctors to stay in their dimensions. Patient can recover quickly due to small incisions. Robotic technology also provides the proper control or access of surgical instruments to surgeons that leads the operate towards success. Robotic technology very effectively assists the surgeons during operations that reduces their fatigues and eliminate chances of human errors.
Cons of using robotic technology in knee replacement:
The major drawback of using robotic technology is that it surprisingly increases the cost of the operation because it’s a very expensive technology itself. Disposable equipment that has to be used along with robotic technology also increases the cost of operate.
There is no compromise when it comes to health. We always recommend patients to choose professional surgeons for themselves.
