Benefits of Robotic-Assisted Surgery

Robotic assisted surgery is surgery that's designed to offer accuracy, value and freedom through robotic assistance.  At the cutting edge of robotics-assisted surgery is the Navio Surgical System. The Navio system helps Prime surgeons improve outcomes and patient satisfaction. The benefits of robotic assisted surgery are many, but the biggest advantage is that it's less invasive for the patient. Risk of infection is minimized, and so is scarring. Robotic surgery is becoming more and more routine as more surgeons become trained in the method. 


How Navio Robotic Surgery Works

The NAVIO Surgical System is currently the only handheld robotics system for knee surgery. Using image-free registration, real-time characterization of bone cartilage is created through landmark collection and point mapping. There is no need for preoperative imaging.

Planning for surgery is patient specific with Navio. Surgeons can visualize their cuts in advance utilizing screening from the individual patient. This preoperative plan helps optimize the surgery for its best outcome. Once the plan is created the robot will only allow movements that have been pre-planned.


Benefits of Robotic Surgery

Robotic surgery offers many benefits over traditional methods for both the patient and the surgeon, including:

  • Shorter recovery times -- Patients who undergo robotic surgery generally boast shorter hospital stays.
  • Less post-operative pain and discomfort -- Patients are able to return to regular activities much more quickly.
  • Smaller incisions -- Robotic surgery offers less chance of infection, less blood loss, and reduces the need for blood transfusions.
  • Reduced scarring -- Incisions are smaller, which results in less scar area.
  • Increased precision -- Surgeons have a better view and more accuracy than they would if performing the surgery more traditionally.
