How To Have A Faster Recovery & Less Pain With Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgery
Robotic Knee And Hip Replacement Made Easy
Knee and hip replacement surgery are standard orthopedic procedures with high success rates. Completing surgery sooner rather than later for severe knee or hip pain can improve overall results. Innovative robotic technology can improve the general procedure to faster recovery and less postoperative pain.
What is robotic-arm assisted surgery?
Robotic-arm assisted surgery is a cutting-edge orthopedic technology designed for personalized knee and hip replacement surgeries. A CT scan of the affected area enables orthopedic surgeons to create a 3D virtual model of the knee of hip anatomy allowing for further surgical planning using advanced software before and during surgery. Surgeons guide the robotic arm to handle cartilage and bone without significant soft tissue damage.
Lower risk of complications
Due to the 3D virtual model created before the surgery, orthopedic surgeons have a clear-cut plan of making incisions without damaging healthy tissue and placing the prosthesis. The innovative technology allows orthopedic surgeons to make precise surgical cuts to get the bone ready for an implant, ensuring accurate prosthetic placement and lower risk for complications.
Faster recovery times
Recovery times vary by person and type of surgery. Compared with traditional surgical procedures, robotic-arm assisted surgery provides patients with a faster recovery. Patients may need to spend a few days in the hospital after knee or hip replacement surgery. Many patients can begin the physical therapy process the following day after surgery. After a few weeks of physical therapy, a patient may be able to return to normal activities.
When to call your doctor
As a minimally-invasive procedure, robotic-arm assisted surgery can lead to minimal or no complications. However, patients should be prepared to make a call if they exhibit any of the following:
Signs of infection
Redness, swelling, severe pain
A fever of over 100º F
Higher success rates and longevity of the prosthesis
Robotic-arm-assisted surgery has a high rate of success. Generally, prosthetic components can last between 10 to 15 years with traditional surgery, and Robotic surgery can increase the longevity of standard prosthetics. Precise prosthesis placement can significantly decrease the risk of failure due to better alignment and positioning.
Are you a candidate for robotic-arm assisted surgery? When conventional treatment options have failed, surgery should be considered, and joint pain persists. Patients suffering from severe swelling, pain, or stiffness from their knee or hip may be good candidates for robotic-arm assisted surgery.

No. Because anesthesia is required for surgeries, we cannot let anyone drive themselves home following a procedure. We ask that you arrange for a family member or close friend to drive you to and from the facility on the day of your appointment. You also need a responsible adult to stay with you for 24 hours after receiving anesthesia.
Our fees cover the use of the facility only. Facility fees do not include laboratory, pathology, surgeon, anesthesiologist or certified nurse anesthetist fees, nor does it include the cost of any implants used for your surgery. You will be billed separately for these fees.
Yes. Before surgery, you and your anesthesia provider will sit down to discuss your medical history and review the anesthesia plan; this is when you’ll be able to voice all of your questions and concerns. Feel free to call our admissions nurse if you have concerns that should be addressed prior to the day of surgery.
No. Your physician, along with the other medical service providers, including anesthesia, radiology or pathology specialists, who use this facility are independent contractors. Because these individuals are not employed by our facility, we are not responsible or liable for their acts or omissions.
