Robotic Knee Replacement
Degenerative diseases such as various types of arthritis can contribute to the deterioration of the knee joint. Many people suffer from knee joint pain and stiffness, which worsens as the cartilage wears thin, and inflammation increases. At Silicon Valley Orthopaedics, our experienced surgeons offer advanced options for treating knee joint pain and dysfunction. When the natural joint is no longer feasible to maintain function, we offer robotic knee replacement surgery for our patients in Fremont, Foster City, and the greater San Jose area.
When treating joint disorders, our goal is to utilize conservative, cutting-edge medical treatments to improve joint pain and dysfunction. However, there does come a point where conservative treatments may no longer offer relief, and surgical options should be considered. Total knee replacement surgery is a last resort to restore function and relieve pain for patients with severe knee joint damage from arthritis and other degenerative diseases. We offer advanced robotic knee replacements with the Rosa Knee System from Zimmer Biomet as one of our surgical knee joint restoration options.
Rosa Knee System From Zimmer Biomet
Zimmer Biomet is one of the oldest and highest acclaimed medical device companies in the U.S., founded in 1927. The Rosa Knee System is one of Zimmer Biomet’s prized joint replacement technology accomplishments, offering precision, accuracy, and efficiency for orthopaedic surgeons performing total knee arthroplasty (TKA) or robotic-assisted knee replacement. The cutting-edge medical technology in the Rosa Knee System allows for real-time data to be shared with the surgeon during the procedure and informative data for post-operative care to benefit the patient.
Why Choose Robotic-Assisted Knee Replacement?
Robotic-assisted knee replacement offers many benefits over traditional open surgery. The use of the Rosa Knee System by our experienced orthopedic surgeons allows for less invasive methods to replace the components within the knee joint with increased accuracy. Some of the benefits of choosing robotic-assisted knee replacement include:
- Smaller incisions equal less tissue damage and smaller scars
- Precision placement of joint implant
- Reduced recovery time
- Increased longevity for joint implant
- Fewer risks of soft tissue injury during surgery
Robotic-assisted knee replacement surgery is not automated – the surgeon uses the Rosa Knee System as a tool to help plan and carefully perform the procedure. The main benefit of using a robotic arthroplasty device is to reduce the risk of unnecessary tissue damage while performing the procedure. The robotic tool’s safeguards and advanced technology help the surgeon increase their precision and reduce the size of the incisions. In comparison to open surgery, patients can expect a rapid recovery and minimal scarring, with fewer surgical damage risks.
Are You a Good Candidate for Knee Arthroplasty?
At SVO, we want to give our patients access to the most beneficial treatments for their unique circumstances. Whenever possible, we try to avoid surgery for treating knee joint pain, but our patients’ health and well-being are the most important factors. If arthritis or other degenerative conditions in your knee joints are no longer responding to conservative treatments, it may be time to consider knee arthroplasty. Our surgeons can determine if you are a good candidate for partial or total knee arthroplasty and discuss your options at our clinic in Fremont or Foster City.
If you are considering knee joint replacement to reduce knee pain and improve function, contact us at Silicon Valley Orthopaedics. We offer cutting-edge robotic total and partial knee replacement surgery using the Rosa Knee System by Zimmer Biomet – contact us today to schedule a knee arthroplasty consultation at one of our clinics in the San Jose area.
