Knee Replacement Surgery can help Relieve pain and restore function in severely diseased knee joints. The procedure involves replacing the damaged surface of knee joint by new surface called Prosthesis which can be made of alloy-metal, high grade plastic and polymers. The success of knee replacement surgery depends on correct alignment and balancing of new joint. Studies have shown well aligned knee replacements may last longer and be more functional. This can be achieved by the Computer Assisted Knee Replacement Surgery. During knee replacement surgery, the end of femur (Thigh bone) and the top of Tibia (Shin bone) are cut to match the corresponding surfaces of new implant (Prosthesis). Computer Assisted Surgery (CAS) enables surgeons to make these bone-cuts with in a fraction of a degree, allowing for accurate alignment of the implant specific to the patient’s unique anatomy.
Benefits of Computer Assisted Knee Replacement Surgery :-
• CAS achieves accurate alignment and ligament balancing.
• Improves implant longevity and performance
• Prevents fat embolisation and blood loss
• Ensure safe and faster recovery
