Joint Replacement

When the pain of osteoarthritis in your knee or hip can’t be controlled by medication or physical therapy, joint replacement is an option. Through high-tech advances in robotics, the doctors at Med Center Health Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine can perform joint replacements that feature less pain, faster recovery and longer lasting results.

Robotics Are Catalyst For Better Joint Replacement Results

With the help of the latest robotic technology, Med Center Health Orthopaedics & Sports Medicine surgeons are performing joint replacement surgeries for knees and hips with better results than traditional surgery.

With robotics, doctors are able to measure existing patients more precisely, which allows them to fit replacement joints better, and position them more accurately to perform better.

The process begins with a CT scan that allows doctors to build a three-dimensional model of the knee or hip to be replaced. This acts like a GPS for the surgeon using the robot, ensuring more precise incisions, and custom fit for each patient. The results are less pain, shorter recovery time and longer lasting implants than were ever possible before.
