Title: Robotic Knee Replacement in Mumbai | Dr Niraj Vora


Knee replacement surgeons and researchers around
the globe are continuously working on advanced
knee surgery procedures that provide long-lasting
relief and short recovery for osteoarthritis
patients. Robotic knee replacement surgery which
has been a front runner of these advanced knee
surgery procedures has successfully established
its efficacy in helping arthritis patients and
can now be performed by trained and
experienced knee replacement surgeons in
Mumbai. However there are plenty of doubts
looming over this procedure, and this blog here
we aim to clear the air with brief information on
the robotic knee replacements procedures. Read
Knee Replacement Surgery

Robotic Knee Replacement Surgery Robotic knee
replacement surgery is a short form of
robot-assisted knee surgery. And as the name
suggests, in a robot-assisted knee replacement
surgery, the surgeon takes the help of a
custom-designed robot to plan and execute the
knee replacement surgery with a far greater
degree of accuracy and precision. Conventional
Knee Replacement Surgery vs Robotic Knee
Replacement Surgery Every knee replacement
starts with recreating the anatomy of the
patients normal knee to assess and calculate the
re-alignment after implantation of the knee
joint. This first step of the knee replacement
procedure is planning, where the knee replacement
surgeon assesses the knee to plan and chart the
process of getting back the knee to the normal
position as the implantation is performed.

In regular knee replacement procedures, this
alignment is calculated based on the population
averages, which means a knee specialist tries to
recreate the joint and its alignment as seen in
an average healthy individual. Though the anatomy
remains the same the alignment sometimes can vary
which requires a customized alignment and
implantation, which may not possible in
convention knee replacement procedures. And this
where the help of advanced medical robotics is
sought in robotic knee replacement
surgery. Robotic Knee Replacement Surgery
Procedure Using a CT scan of the patients knee
as an input, the robot creates a 3D model of the
knee to help plan the process. Specialized
equipment is then used to help the robot locate
and see the leg, knee joint and operation
location. The robot takes this information to
blend it with a knee replacement plan and directs
the knee replacement surgeon through the
real-time 3D modelled screen to accurately
perform the surgery. The robot here makes sure
that the tension between the ligaments and
alignment and implantation of the knee is
pitch-perfect based on its standard work-up and
calculations performed for a specific patient.

Benefits of Robotic Knee Replacement
ProcedureGiven they enable customized alignment
and implantation specific to a patients anatomy,
a Robotic-assisted knee replacement procedure
allows a far greater degree of precision. This
results in far less disturbance to natural tissue
and bone paving a way for better healing and
shorter recovery time. While the traditional knee
replacement surgery takes at least 4 to 6 weeks
for an acceptable recovery, robot-assisted knee
replacement cuts this long recovery time in half,
according to knee specialists in Mumbai. Who is
the right candidate for robotic knee replacement
surgery? Every patient who is a candidate for
traditional knee replacement surgery is also a
right candidate for robotic knee replacement
surgery. But it must be remembered that knee
replacement surgery is always a last resort
option recommended by knee replacement
surgeon when all the other alternative treatment
option fail to give relief. If you are
