What Is the NAVIO Surgical System?
NAVIO Surgical System is a robotics-assisted navigation technology designed to help orthopedic surgeons perform partial and total knee replacement surgery with a greater degree of accuracy, potentially resulting in better implant durability. With the NAVIO Surgical System, patients who have had knee operations may experience less pain and swelling compared to traditional surgical methods.
How Does the NAVIO Surgical System Work for Knee Replacement?
NAVIO Surgical System works in tandem with your surgeon’s skilled hands to achieve precise positioning of the knee implant components during surgery.
Each patient has a unique anatomy. During the procedure, the surgeon uses the NAVIO handheld robotics technology to create a customized 3D digital model of your knee. This image helps the surgeon choose the right size of the implant for you and create a detailed surgical plan to optimize your knee’s range of motion and function. As an added benefit, the NAVIO Surgical System eliminates the need to get a CT scan of your knee before surgery.
