Robotic Assisted Knee Surgery
CLERMONT COUNTY, Ohio (WKRC) – Local doctors are now using breakthrough technology that is helping those in need of joint replacement surgery.
As more of us are getting active after a year out in this pandemic, many people are choosing to step up and take care of joint pain they’ve been struggling with for years.
If knee joint replacement is in your future, the team at OrthoCincy and OrthoCincy Wellington say some high-tech help in surgery is giving people some really precise outcomes.
“You know, we’re getting knee replacements younger and younger, so we need them to last longer and longer,” said Dr. Amelia Wiggins, an orthopedic surgeon at OrthoCincy Wellington.
Dr. Wiggins is one of a small number of orthopedic surgeons now using a robotic system for knee replacements. She calls it the Stryker Mako System.
There’s a similar surgery using that system in the St. Elizabeth Surgery Center in Edgewood by the OrthoCincy team. It’s a robotic system designed to:
“Help personalize the total knee replacement for each individual patient,” said Dr. Wiggins.
With the help of imaging, there’s a pre-surgery plan for your knee put together by you and your doctor. The robot then works as an extension of the surgeon’s hands for precise knee joint replacement, which after recovery:“
It’s going to feel different for you based on how your knee was before surgery,” added Dr. Wiggins. “So, with this robot technology, I can match the total knee replacement to how your knee was, your native knee before surgery. After surgery, you’re going to say this feels like my knee."
