Investment in technology
Robotic-assisted technology: What is the NAVIO® Surgical System?
The NAVIO® system is a significant advancement in the way orthopaedic surgeons perform knee replacement surgery. The system works in conjunction with the surgeon’s existing skills to achieve accurate positioning of the knee implants based on each patient’s unique anatomy.
Using the NAVIO® system, the surgeon creates a computerised 3D representation of the unique shapes and profiles of the patient’s knee without the need of a pre-operative CT scan. Using all of this information the surgeon can then determine the correct size and position of the implant. This is critical to knee alignment, stability and overall functional outcome. Using the boundaries that have now been established, the surgeons uses the robotic-assisted hand piece to remove only the damaged surfaces of the bone, balance the joint and position the implant with greater accuracy.
This added level of accuracy is designed to improve the function, recovery, feel and potential longevity of the knee implant.
