Best Robotic Knee Relacement in Mumbai
Knee pain due to Osteoarthritis can be discouraging and depressing. Fortunately, there are many treatment options to address this pain. If surgery happens to be the best recourse, you should be happy to know that we always use the latest technology for our patients. At The Knee Clinic we are committed to delivering the finest care possible backed by experience and evidence. All of this, just for our patients to
Walk. Run. Live. After reading this, I hope you have a better understanding of a Robotic Knee Replacement procedure”
“Incredible things can be done if we are committed to make them happen”
Osteoarthritis occurs when there is a breakdown of the cushioning cartilage in the knee. Bones begin to rub against each other causing pain, swelling and stiffness affecting routine daily activities. While there is no cure for osteoarthritis, there are multiple treatment options to manage pain ad potentially delay disease progression. These include exercises, weight loss, aces and/or medication. If osteoarthritis progresses to an advanced stage and iscausing severe pain, surgery including partial or total knee replacement may be he best option.
If surgery happens to be the best recourse, you should be happy to know that we always use the latest technology for our patients. The NAVIO-CORI Robotic Surgery platform (Smith & Nephew, UK) is one of the foremost healthcare innovations of this century and we strongly believe that THIS IS THE FUTURE of Knee Surgery. Robotic Knee Replacements have the potential to RECOVER FASTER, FEEL BETTER and LAST LONGER.
What is done during a Knee Replacement?
Partial Knee Replacement, where only the diseased part of the knee is resurfaced (replaced), can benefit patients with early to mid-stage osteoarthritis.
Total Knee Replacement, where the entire knee joint is resurfaced, is generally reserved for advanced osteoarthritis affecting multiple compartments of the knee.
A knee replacement consists of 3 basic steps:
Skin and soft tissue over the affected knee is incised. Muscles are retracted to gain access to underlying bone surfaces.
Damaged cartilage coating at the end of femur (thigh bone) and tibia (shin bone) is removed manually or with robotic assistance
Removed cartilage and bone is replaced with metallic components - to recreate femoral and tibial surfaces. Metallic parts are cemented in place.
Think of a pilot negotiating a plane through a thunderstorm. A few decades ago, gut instincts would matter most. Today, the pilot has high quality satellite navigation (GPS) to rely on, think ‘autopilot’. No sudden drops, no emergency landings, in fact even turbulence is managed well! On similar lines, an ortopaedic surgeon doing conventional knee replacements eyeballs most parts othe surgery. The same surgeon, with robotics assistance, can get a greathree dimensional view of the knee and can plan near perfect sizing and placement of replacement components. Each time. Every time.
Robotics-assisted Replacement surgery is an advancement in the way orthopaedic surgeons perform Knee Replacements. Robotic assistance is provided by NAVIO-CORI (Smith+Nephew, UK), an advanced computer program (on a console) that relays precise, real-time information to a surgeon held device. Every procedure has an individualized plan based on each patent's unique anatomy
In simple words, Dr. Sheth first maps the unique shape of your arthritic knee with a special pencil tool. A 3D mock-up of the native knee is then generated, on which the computer tries to custom fit and size implants (replacement components). Once this plan is approved by Dr. Sheth, the resurfacing is executed with a special robotics-assisted handpiece that works within pre-defined boundaries, minimizing tissue damage and eliminating human errors.
Image-free Registration: In real time, we characterize the patient’s bone and cartilage through point mapping.
Patient-specific Planning: We customize a plan to position components, based on each knee’s native kinematic motion.
Robotics-assisted Preparation: The plan including bone resurfacing can be executed to perfection using a hand held device (small cutting tool).
Post-surgery Confirmation: At the end of surgery, we can assess the final knee stability, motion and long leg alignment
