Total knee replacement
Computer-assisted approach ensures accuracy
Using the assistance of a computer during planning, surgeons customize the steps of surgery to ensure perfect implant alignment. The computer also displays specific anatomy onscreen during the procedure and provides guidance so surgical instruments are precisely positioned. The use of this technology ensures that the area of the knee affected by surgery isas minimal as possible, reducing side effects and improving recovery time.
Arthroscopy is a common surgical procedure in which a joint is viewed by inserting a small camera (about the size of a pencil) into a small incision. Other surgical equipment is also inserted in very small incisions around the knee joint to perform the necessary procedure. The arthroscopic technique gives doctors a clear view of the inside of the knee, helping them diagnose and treat knee problems.
Arthroscopy for the knee is most commonly used for:
- Removal or repair of torn meniscal cartilage
- Reconstruction of a torn anterior cruciate ligament (ACL injuries)
- Trimming of torn pieces of articular cartilage
- Removal of loose fragments of bone or cartilage
- Removal of inflamed synovial tissue
