How can we help you?
Robotic Orthopedic Surgery uses a robotic device to perform prosthesis surgeries for joint arthritis treatment, tailored to each patient''s unique anatomy and biomechanics. The surgery aims to alleviate pain and preserve joint mobility by covering damaged joint surfaces with a prosthesis. This method involves detailed pre-operative planning with a 3D virtual model and MRI scans, ensuring precision in implant placement and joint ligament balance. The procedure is performed through a small incision, leading to quicker recovery and reduced pain compared to traditional surgeries. Robotic Orthopedic Surgery is anticipated to expand to other joints like the shoulder soon.

Robotic Orthopedic Surgery

The Robotic Orthopedics device, which is used in prosthesis procedures for the treatment of joint arthritis, provides a prosthesis surgery suitable for the patient's anatomy and biomechanics during surgery.

With the damage to the articular cartilage, also known as calcification , the bone ends on the cartilage tissue begin to rub, which causes pain.  

The aim of prosthetic surgery is to reduce pain and preserve mobility and functionality by covering the damaged joint surfaces.

Prosthesis surgery requires adherence to a set of standards and procedures, but since the joint structure is individualized, a specific procedure should be applied to each patient.

What is the Robotic Orthopedic Surgery System?

With Robotic Orthopedic Surgery, the operation planned by the surgeon is performed in accordance with the procedure. With the detailed planning feature of the Robotic Orthopedics device, the most suitable implant for the person's anatomy is determined. It evaluates issues such as joint flexibility and ligament balance of the person with precision.

With Robotic Orthopedic Surgery, only surfaces limited to damaged areas can be covered and mobile and dynamic joint structures can be obtained. This prevents length or shortness problems that may occur in the leg. At the same time, the patient's recovery process is faster in the operation performed through a small surgical incision compared to other operations.

Robotic Orthopedic Surgery is expected to be used in the treatment of arthritis of other joints such as the shoulder in the near future.

How is Robotic Orthopedic Surgery Performed?

A 3D virtual model of the joints is created with the pre-operative MRI. After the physician's evaluation, the implant to be used and the interventions to be performed are planned very precisely.

When the operation starts, the first thing the physician will do is to match the 3D virtual model of the joints in the robot's memory with the real joint anatomy in the operating room. After matching, Robotic Orthopedic Surgery will start to see the joint in the spatial environment thanks to its eyes in the operating room, that is, reflector sensor systems.

Before proceeding with the preparation of the implant sockets, the robotic system precisely analyzes the joint ligament balance, that is, biomechanics. It also reports the opposite leg length differences in hip surgeries to the physician. The physician evaluates the results of this analysis and decides on the final and biomechanically most appropriate placement of the implant.

After the pressure washing of the prepared slots, the pre-planned implants are applied by the physician under the guidance of the robotic arm. Post-robotic surgery pain level is less compared to standard surgery.
