Partial and total knee joint replacement numbers have grown rapidly in recent years. While traditional surgical procedures for the knee had a good success rate, robotic knee surgery has an even better success rate.
What is robotic-assisted knee surgery?
In many cases, patients with knee pain rely on noninvasive treatments when their pain first begins. However, treatments like physical therapy and prescription pain medications may begin to lose their effectiveness if your knee continues to deteriorate. In these cases, surgery may be the best option to reduce your knee pain.
One type of knee surgery growing in popularity is robotic-assisted knee surgery. There are many reasons for this. For one thing, the procedure is less invasive than traditional knee surgeries. For example, robotic surgical systems allow surgeons to take images of the knee joint before the main part of the surgery begins. The images allow the surgeon to see the knee from all angles. These visuals also allow them to plan out the amount of material to remove from the knee, the exact size of the implant needed and other critical aspects of the surgery, and all this is done before any cutting is done.
Another reason this form of knee surgery is so popular is it’s more precise than those done by human surgeons alone. Precision is vital to knee surgery for several reasons. One reason is more precise cuts lead to better fitting implants that tend to last longer for the patient. It may also reduce pain post-surgery and reduce recovery time.
What is the success rate of robotic-assisted knee surgery?
Knee surgery performed with robotic systems has a very high success rate. In fact, one article revealed that nine out of 10 people experienced immediate knee pain relief following their surgery. This means that 90 percent of people having this surgery nationwide saw great results, which is very good.
However, our success rate at Phoenix Spine & Joint is even higher. Patient satisfaction numbers for our surgery patients show our success rate currently stands at an almost perfect 99 percent, and we’re constantly working to improve to a perfect 100 percent.
