Learn more about how this new technology can improve the quality of life for those facing partial knee or total hip replacement.

Cape Cod Healthcare provides the latest in technology for orthopedic surgery, including Robotic-Arm Assisted Joint Replacement Surgery.

This technology allows your surgeon to use 3D imaging and robotic precision for partial knee replacement or total hip replacement procedures.

The first step is to create a customized surgical plan for each patient, starting with a CT scan of the knee or hip. This image is uploaded into the robotic-arm system, producing a 3D model of the area undergoing surgery. Based on that model, your surgeon maps the procedure from start to finish.

During surgery, the surgeon directs the robotic arm to the surgical site based on the patient-specific plan, providing precise guidance to assist in preserving healthy bone and in the case of hip replacement surgery, provide assistance to position the hip implant based on the patient’s anatomy.

Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgery offers a minimally invasive treatment for partial knee replacement for those with early- to mid-stage osteoarthritis. Benefits include:

  • Less implant wear and loosening
  • Joint resurfacing
  • Smaller incision
  • Reduced blood loss
  • Shorter hospitalization
  • Rapid recovery

For total hip replacement, Robotic-Arm Assisted Surgery is an innovative option that provides more accuracy for bone preparation and in the placement of implants. Other benefits include:

  • Reduced dislocation rates versus manual total hip replacement
  • Less blood loss
  • Higher function and activity scores compared to manual total hip replacement
  • Robotic Arm Assisted Partial Knee Replacement

    Patient-specific 3D Model

    A 3D model of your knee or hip provides a customized map for surgery, assisting your surgeons for better outcomes.
