Our Approach to Robotic Technology
ROC works with industry leaders in surgical robotics to bring a new level of accuracy and precision to joint replacement surgery.
Meet the ROSA® Robotic Knee System
The goal of a robotic knee replacement is the same as a traditional knee replacement procedure: to help patients with severe knee arthritis regain mobility. With the addition of the ROSA Knee System, ROC surgeons offer total knee replacement patients less pain, increased longevity of the implant, reduced blood loss, reduced likelihood of injury, and a quicker return to the full range of motion.
Benefits to robotic surgery using the ROSA Knee System include:
- ROSA uses data from two-dimensional X-Rays to produce a highly accurate three-dimensional virtual image of your knee
- Accurate and precise cuts in the bone, result in well-placed implant components
- ROSA allows your surgeon to personalize your implant placement, achieving a more natural-feeling knee
How it Works
Meet the MAKO® Robotic-Arm System
Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted surgery enables a new level of accuracy and precision for joint replacement surgery. Mako is used by our surgeons for partial knee resurfacing, total knee replacements, and total hip replacements. The surgeon controlled robotic arm helps surgeons get a patient-specific image and more precisely place and align implants used in joint replacement surgery.
A personalized plan. It begins with a CT scan of the joint that is used to generate a 3D virtual model of your unique anatomy. This virtual model is loaded into the Mako system software and is used to create a personalized pre-operative plan.
In the Operating Room
During surgery, your surgeon guides the robotic-arm while preparing the joint and positioning the implant based on the personalized pre-operative plan. The Mako system also allows the surgeon to make adjustments to the plan during surgery, as needed. When the surgeon prepares the bone for the implant, the Mako system guides the surgeon within the pre-defined area and helps prevent the surgeon from moving outside the planned boundaries. This helps provide more accurate placement and alignment of the implant.
Your surgeon, nurses and physical therapists will set goals to get you moving again. They will closely monitor your condition and progress. Your surgeon may review an X-ray of the new joint replacement with you.
How it Works
Knee Replacement Surgery
Knee replacement has come a long way in the past decades and you and your doctor have several options. Depending on how much damage your doctor sees in your knee, your doctor may recommend a total knee replacement or a partial knee replacement.
Hip Replacement Surgery
If you’re one of the millions of Americans suffering from pain caused by arthritis or an injury to the hip, and you haven’t experienced adequate relief with conservative treatment options, Mako Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgery might be right for you.
