Knee Arthritis can make your day to day life very difficult. Arthritis pain can begin suddenly, but it is most likely to develop gradually over time. You may first experience pain when waking up in the morning or when you stand up after sitting for a while.
Eventually, you may notice that the pain has taken control over your ability to complete everyday tasks. It may hurt to walk, climb stairs, or even sit down. You may not be able to bend or straighten your knee as you once could. You may also feel a grinding sensation in your knee or popping and cracking sounds when you walk. Arthritis can even wake you up in your sleep.
The appearance of your knee may change and become deformed due to the breakdown of the joint. There may come a time when you decide that you need help. If you have already been through this ordeal and your symptoms for arthritis aren't responding to non-surgical solutions, then knee replacement surgery is the most effective treatment available today.
Knee Replacement Surgery for Advanced Knee Osteoarthritis
The most common surgical knee intervention performed for the treatment of OA (Osteoarthritis) is a total knee replacement. During the procedure, the natural knee joint is removed and replaced with an artificial implant. This treatment option is usually offered to patients with advanced osteoarthritis of the knee.
However, with the advent of innovative robotic technology like CUVIS Joint® total knee replacement surgery today is made more accurate, effective and less traumatic for patients.
CUVIS Joint® for Accurate & Successful Robotic Knee Replacement Surgery
In knee replacement surgery, the arthritic portion of the knee is removed and replaced by an artificial joint that forms the new surfaces of the knee joint. During CUVIS Joint® robot total knee replacement, a surgeon uses a computed tomography (CT) scans to build a 3D model of the patient's knee. With that virtual model as a guide, the surgeon then uses the robotic arm to make accurate bone cuts and insert the knee components precisely.
How CUVIS Joint® works?
Personalised pre-planning:- The 3D images of the patient’s joint are used by the doctor for pre-planning of the surgery personalized to the patient.
Pre-selection and precise insertion of artificial joint:- The doctor uses the robot to select an artificial joint for the patient and insert it accurately.
Precise cutting for accuracy and optimum alignment:- Robot reviews the data and cuts the bone precisely with respect to the dimensions of the implant decided during the pre-surgery planning stage.
