Robotic Surgery Q & A

What is robotic surgery?

Robotic surgery, also known as robotic-assisted surgery, combines minimally invasive surgical techniques with advanced robotic technology. With robotic surgery, surgeons have the ability to perform complex procedures through smaller incisions and with greater precision. 

The Silicon Valley Orthopaedics team uses robotic surgery when performing joint replacement procedures. Robotic surgery allows the team to provide better balance and joint alignment that ultimately leads to better outcomes for you. 

What are the types of robotic surgery for joint replacement?

Silicon Valley Orthopaedics performs robotic surgery for knee and hip replacement procedures using the innovative ROSA robotic surgery systems.

ROSA Knee System

The ROSA Knee System is a surgeon-centered robotic tool that allows your surgeon to customize your total knee replacement procedure to meet your exact needs and measurements.

With this system, your orthopaedic surgeon takes a 3D CT scan of your knee. The system’s software uses this data to map out a precise surgical plan. Your surgeon uses this plan and the robotic tools to create a small incision to remove your damaged joint.

The robotic system then enables your surgeon to make precise movements when placing the components of your prosthetic knee. Correct positioning of your prosthesis gives you a more natural-feeling and an easier time during the rehabilitation process. 

ROSA Hip System

With the ROSA Hip System, your surgeon uses CT technology to build a 3D model of your hip and surgical space. 

During the hip replacement procedure, the robotic system guides your surgeon when removing your damaged hip joint. Then, assists in providing your surgeon with the accurate placement of the prosthetic parts. 

Robotic surgery allows your surgeon to precisely position your prosthetic hip to improve comfort, function, and longevity. 

Am I a candidate for robotic surgery?

The Silicon Valley Orthopaedics team conducts comprehensive exams to determine the best treatment for your joint pain condition. If you have ongoing hip or knee pain that no longer responds to medical interventions, then the team may recommend joint replacement surgery.

The team uses robotic surgery to perform partial and total hip replacements and total knee replacements. Though robotic surgery offers many benefits, some people may need traditional joint replacement surgery.
