Robotic-Assisted Knee Replacement in Kansas City
Robotic-Assisted Knee Replacement
NAVIO SURGICAL SYSTEM
Dr. Scott Abraham and Dr. Michael McCabe are at the forefront of joint replacement options in Kansas City, utilizing robotic assistance – the NAVIO Surgical System – in total and partial knee replacements. This system allows our physicians to individualize the procedure for each patient.
The NAVIO Surgical System aids surgeons in component positioning, ligament balancing and bone preparation during total and partial joint replacements.
The NAVIO Surgical System provides real time imaging allowing the surgeon to continually assess the patient anatomy during surgery with greater accuracy thus improving the function, feel and potential longevity of the knee implant.
How does NAVIO work?
The NAVIO surgical system relays precise information about your knee to a robotics-assisted handpiece held by your surgeon during the procedure. Through the collecting of patient specific information being done by the NAVIO system, boundaries are established for the handpiece allowing your surgeon to remove damaged surfaces of the knee, balance your joint and position the implant with a greater level of accuracy.
