Here’s a Simple Overview of CUVIS Joint®
Best Robotic System for Artificial Joint Surgery in India
So what makes CUVIS Joint® - the best robotic system for artificial joint surgery in India?

Personalized pre-planning

As each person has a different face, the shape of the bone is also different. Meril’s artificial joint surgical robot CUVIS Joint® shows the patient’s bone in 3D images, and the doctor can use those images for pre-planning of surgery personalized for the patient.

Pre-selection of artificial joint and precise insertion of artificial joint

What’s as important as the precise surgical plan is to select and insert the personalized artificial joint. The doctor uses robot to select an artificial joint for the patient and insert it accurately.

Precise cutting for sub-millimetre accuracy & optimum alignment

Precise cutting serves the optimum result. CUVIS Joint® provides the correct alignment of a patient’s leg axis with the sub-millimetre dimensional accuracy and precise cutting for the optimal surgical outcome.

Reduction of side effects and reoperation

CUVIS Joint® reduces side effects like inequality of limb length, pulmonary embolism, and fracture. The risk of infection is also reduced because of fewer instruments in use than in conventional surgery.

Cuvis Joint Knee Replacement Process & Procedure

Step 1: Patients can decide upon robotic artificial joint surgery after consulting with the doctor

Step 2: CT scanning

Step 3: The scanned CT image is converted into a 3D image for diagnosing the patient's condition and make surgical plans as required.

Step 4: The patient is connected to the robot and stabilized for surgery. In the next stage, the doctor performs registration process to verify if the 3D image of the patient matches the original surgery site.

After registration process, robot reviews the data and cuts the bone precisely with respect to size, position, angle and direction of the implant decided during pre-surgery planning stage.

Step 5: Insert and fix the decided implant for surgery conclusion.

What is robotic CUVIS joint surgery?

CUVIS joint surgery is an automated robotic joint surgery system performed using cutting-edge CUVIS robotic technology.

Joint surgeries are challenging and intricate surgical procedures requiring exceptional dexterity, precision, and skill in planning and executing the intricate manoeuvres involved. By utilizing a world-class joint robot system like CUVIS, a surgeon can efficiently pre-plan their surgery by using the 3D images of the bone generated by the joint system, selecting a personalized implant, and aiding in making precise bone cuts.

Thus, a CUVIS joint robot system provides complete help with preplanning, pre-selection, and precise bone cuts management to enable successful joint surgery with minimum discomfort and maximum accuracy. It is hailed as the best joint robot system for artificial joint surgery in Mumbai.

What are the advantages of robotic knee surgery?

Robotic surgery amplifies the skill and dexterity of the surgeon for the most efficient surgical procedures. By providing advanced imaging help, a robotic system assists surgeons in effectively pre-planning the surgery beforehand.

Robotic knee surgery aids in precisely selecting personalized knee implants, offering sub-millimetre level accuracy in bone cuts making. This extraordinary support facilitates the implementation of the knee surgical procedure as planned by the specialist surgeon. Patients who have undergone robotic knee surgery experience highly accurate surgeries that minimize blood loss, accelerating their recovery while ensuring the perfect alignment of the knee implant.

Why robotic artificial joint surgery is good?

A robotic surgery performed using a world-class joint robot system like CUVIS robotic technology benefits from extremely precise surgical procedures with perfect implantation of artificial joints. The surgical procedures performed by these advanced robot systems minimize blood loss, reduce the risk of infection, and consequently accelerate the recovery of patients.

How does robotic knee surgery work?

Knee surgery is a generic term encompassing a wide range of surgical procedures performed on the knee. Similarly, the robotic systems that are employed can vary too. To help you understand better, let us take knee replacement surgery performed by CUVIS joint robot system as an example. Here are the three steps that outline how CUVIS robotic knee replacement is performed:

Pre-planning: Everyone's knee is different. So the joint robot systems render a 3D image of the bone structure to help the knee replacement surgeon plan his surgery precisely.

Pre-selection: With the help of joint robot systems, the knee replacement surgeon zeroes in on the right artificial joint for the patient based on his condition.

Precise bone cuts: The surgeon uses the robotic arm to make precise bone cuts to sub-millimetre levels for optimal surgical outcomes.

What is the cost of robotic knee replacement?

Knee replacement surgery in Mumbai is an advanced procedure that requires extreme planning, resources, and advanced expertise. However, the advent of joint robot systems like CUVIS has brought significant improvement in implementations and, consequently, the cost of the procedure.

But one must remember that not all robotic joint systems are the same; each system has its own merits and limitations, based on which the cost of robotic knee replacement varies. On average, the cost of robotic knee replacement can vary from ₹4,00,000 to ₹7,00,000 based on the specific case of knee replacement and the type of joint robotic system used. For example, the cost of CUVIS joint replacement In India may also vary based on the CUVIS robot price in India.

What technology is used in robotic knee surgery?

Joint robot systems are used to perform robotic knee surgery (the most advanced being the CUVIS joint robot system). These systems provide 3D models of bones using imaging technologies like CT scans, which aid in selecting the right knee implants for the procedures and enable precise bone cuts for knee surgeries. CUVIS is India's most trusted and advanced joint robot system for performing artificial joint surgeries.

Is robotic knee surgery better than manual?

In terms of precision, pain management, and recovery, robotic knee replacement is far better than completely manual knee replacement procedures.

What is the recovery time for robotic knee replacement?

The recovery after robotic knee replacement surgery depends on various factors, including the extent of the surgery, the health status of the patient, and their age. Usually, in regular knee replacement cases, the initial recovery period can last for a few weeks and full recovery can take up to 3-6 months.

"Given the precise nature and reduced tissue damage and incisions associated with robotic knee replacement, the recovery usually gets quicker than manual knee replacement surgery," says one of the best knee replacement surgeons in Mumbai, Dr. Niraj Vora.

Is robotic knee surgery painful?

Knee surgery is performed under Spinal Anaesthesia. After the knee surgery, advanced techniques are used by the Anaesthetists to minimise pain following surgery.

Like any other knee surgical procedure, robotic knee surgery involves incisions and some pain or discomfort post-operation. The pain level often depends on the extent of the surgery and the patient's pain tolerance. However, robotic knee surgeries involve minimal incisions, blood loss, and precise surgical procedures, leading to minimized pain or discomfort than any other knee surgical procedures.

Best Robotic Knee Surgeon in India

Advanced robotic joint systems are tools that help knee specialist surgeons perform knee surgeries with precision. The devices are only as good as the hand that wields them, making the knee replacement surgeon's expertise, experience, and track record paramount for successful surgical outcomes. Any knee replacement surgeon or knee specialist must be an expert in their niche while being adept at using robotic joint systems.
