Computer Navigation and Robotic for Total Knee Replacement

Computer navigation provides the surgeon with the real time 3-D images of the mapped patient’s knee and the surgical instruments during surgery. The data for the images is provided by the infrared sensors fixed to the bones of the knee and the surgical instruments. Future technology will enable a the surgeon to use a robotic assisted arm to make the surgery more accurate and efficient.
