Computer-Navigated Joint Replacement (Hip/Knee): Precision at No Extra Cost
Introduction: Total knee joint replacement surgery has witnessed significant advancements over the years. One key factor affecting the success of knee replacement is the precise alignment and adequate balance achieved during the procedure. Traditional total knee replacement utilized alignment jigs and cutting blocks, with surgeons relying on eyeballing for bone cuts and ligament balancing. However, computer navigation has revolutionized knee replacement surgery by providing an advanced software-based approach for absolute precision.
Advantages of Computer-Assisted Knee Replacement: Computer-navigated knee joint replacement offers numerous advantages at no extra cost. The software allows the surgeon to outline the deformity, plan the procedure accordingly, and perform bone cuts and ligament balancing with exceptional accuracy. It also assists in selecting the most appropriate component size and ensures proper component rotation, leading to a well-balanced and well-aligned knee joint, ultimately contributing to its longevity. With computer navigation, the surgeon gains real-time feedback on the operation table, ensuring full correction of deformities and predicting the patient’s post-operative range of motion.
Additional Benefits: In addition to precise alignment and balance, computer-navigated total knee replacement provides various other benefits. Patients can benefit from smaller incisions (minimally invasive approach), reduced blood loss, and faster rehabilitation, enabling them to stand on the day of surgery.
Understanding the Role of Navigation: To comprehend the role of navigation in total knee replacement, consider a simple analogy. Stitching clothes with thread and needle was once the traditional method, but with the introduction of sewing machines, stitching became easier and more precise. Similarly, computer navigation plays a pivotal role in total knee replacement, elevating a good surgery to a better one, ensuring optimal outcomes for patients.
