Who is a Candidate?
If your patient suffers from degenerative joint disease and the pain no longer responds to medication and other non-surgical treatments, robotically-assisted orthopaedic surgery may be the next step.
Total Knee Replacement may be the best option for those who experience knee pain that interferes with daily activity and is persistent even at rest.
Partial Knee Replacement may be the best option for those who suffer from knee pain with activity, usually on the inner knee and/or under the kneecap or the outer knee.
Total Hip Replacement may be recommended for those who experience pain while putting weight on the affected hip, limping to lessen the weight-bearing pressure on the affected hip, pain that may radiate to the groin, lower back, or down the thigh to the knee, and start-up knee pain or stiffness when activities are initiated from a sitting position.
