Total Knee Replacement
Total knee replacement, also called total knee arthroplasty, is a surgical procedure in which the worn out or damaged surfaces of the knee joint are removed and replaced with artificial parts. The knee is made up of the femur (thigh bone), the tibia (shin bone), and patella (kneecap).
Robotic Assisted Partial Knee Replacement
Robotic assisted partial knee surgery is an innovative alternative to the conventional surgical procedure in patients suffering from degenerative knee disorders such as osteoarthritis. The procedure is most beneficial in patients with unicompartmental knee arthritis. Robotic assisted partial knee surgery can be considered in patients with early to mid-stage osteoarthritis associated with symptoms such as knee pain and swelling, It is performed using robotic-arm technology that allows the surgeon to precisely perform the surgery through a smaller incision as compared to traditional surgery.
Robotic Assisted Total Knee Replacement
We understand that making sure you know what to expect from your joint replacement experience is important to you. As you are reading through this material, if you have additional questions please reach out to us to discuss.
Arthroscopy of the Knee Joint
Knee Arthroscopy is a common surgical procedure. It is performed using an arthroscope, a viewing instrument, to look into the knee joint to diagnose or treat a knee problem. It is a relatively safe procedure and a majority of the patient’s discharge from the hospital on the same day of surgery.
Anterior Cruciate Ligament ACL Reconstruction
The anterior cruciate ligament is one of the major stabilizing ligaments in the knee. It is a strong rope like structure located in the centre of the knee running from the femur to the tibia. When this ligament tears, it does not heal and often leads to the feeling of instability in the knee.
Uni condylar Knee Replacement
Unicompartmental knee replacement is a minimally invasive surgery in which only the damaged compartment of the knee is replaced with an implant. It is also called a partial knee replacement.
Revision Knee Replacement
Revision knee replacement surgery involves replacing part or all of your previous knee prostheses with a new prosthesis. Although total knee replacement surgery is very successful, sometimes the implants can fail due to various reasons and require a second, or revision, surgery.
