Orthopedic ROSA Knee Surgery
Orthopedic Robotics Surgery now being offered in Dallas/Fort Worth and Arlington Area
The providers at AOA Orthopedic Specialists are constantly staying up to date with medicine’s most innovative technology. We are pleased to announced that we will now have the ROSA knee system to assist in total knee arthroplasties (replacements).
What is the ROSA knee?
The ROSA knee is a robotics system from Zimmer Biomet which aids in the resection of bone, as well as assesses the state of soft tissues to fit implants in the best position. Complete with multiple modalities of imaging, the ROSA knee robotics system allows for better efficiency, accuracy, and patient outcomes.
Why is orthopedic robotics surgery gaining popularity around North Texas?
Many people may wonder why robotics are now necessary to perform knee replacements when they have never been needed before. So what are benefits? Robotic intelligence allows our state-of-the-art surgeons to predict surgical outcomes before performing the actual surgery. The ROSA knee provides surgeons with intraoperative data along with predicted post-operative data, in order to predict long term patient outcomes. The ROSA knee has flexible imaging modalities, including x-ray and imageless options, which allow surgeons and patients to reduce costs. Along with reducing costs, the precise imaging allows for preoperative planning with 2D to 3D bone modeling that customize to each patient’s unique anatomy.
How does Orthopedic Robotics Surgery work?
Created with the help of surgeons, the ROSA knee workflow adapts to a surgeon’s exact technique. According to Zimmer Biomet, the ROSA knee was created on the 3 P’s: Personalized Implants, Precise Implantation, and Proven Technology. The ROSA knee gives surgeons optional tools for soft tissue balancing and femoral rotation to ensure the implant is perfectly fitted to the patients knee. These options include real time range of motion assessment, varus and valgus laxity measurements, and gap measurements. Imaging capabilities allows surgeons to conduct the knee replacement “virtually” which allows them to predict outcomes and implant placement before making any incisions.
