If you have been living with knee pain and are postponing surgery, you may want to consider a partial knee replacement.
Using a robotic arm to assist the surgeon with accuracy, the surgeon resurfaces only the portion of the knee causing problems, sparing your healthy bone and muscle, helping maintain your knee’s range of motion. The implant is secured in the joint to allow the knee to move smoothly again. The surgery is performed through a smaller incision and there is less bone removed and less muscle cut, leading to a quicker recovery, less pain and a shorter hospital stay. Many robotic-assisted partial knee replacements are performed as same-day outpatient procedures. Many surgeons prefer this procedure as an option in younger, more active patients.
For more information about robotic-assisted partial knee replacement or to schedule an appointment, please call the Saint Francis Orthopedic Institute at 415.353.6380.
