Prime Technology: Robotic Assisted Surgery

When you need a surgical procedure, you want to know that you are receiving the best possible care while also benefiting from innovative technologies and procedural approaches. The need for quality care is even more pronounced when you are facing an important procedure that changes your life, such as a joint replacement.

Integrating the very latest in advanced medical technology, such as robotic assisted surgery, allows the expert surgeons at Prime Surgical Suites to provide premium care to our patients while still delivering the personalized experience many surgical centers cannot provide.


Robotic Assisted Surgery

At Prime Surgical Suites, we offer an advancement in the way surgeries are completed in the form of robotic assisted surgery. This type of procedure combines the hands of a skilled surgeon with robotic assistance to provide better results. Prime Surgical Suites is proud to use the NAVIO Surgical System, which adds both accuracy and precision to our joint replacement procedures.


How the NAVIO Surgical System Works

The NAVIO Surgical System works in tandem with the surgeon's hands to find the perfect placement for the joint implant based on your unique anatomy. The NAVIO Surgical System then uses an advanced computer program to collect and relay precise information about your joint to a robotic handpiece. Thanks to this information, the surgeon is able to remove the damaged parts of the joint, place the implant appropriately and ensure optimal balance.


Benefits of Robotic Assisted Surgery

Some of the specific benefits offered by robotic assisted surgery include:

  • Better feel - Because the replacement is performed with your anatomy in mind, you will enjoy a more comfortable joint replacement, making it easier for you to become accustomed to your new joint.
  • Better function - Accurate placement of the joint implant improves the joint's function, allowing you to experience a better quality of life and more freedom in your movement.
  • Better longevity - Joints replaced using robotic assisted surgical techniques tend to last longer than joint replacements performed using traditional methods.
  • Faster recovery times - Enhanced precision and accuracy during the joint replacement process typically leads to a shorter recovery time, allowing you to get back to your normal activities as quickly as possible and spend less time in rehabilitation.
  • Peace of mind - When you know that your skilled surgeon is using robotic assisted techniques to complete your joint replacement, you can feel a greater sense of confidence. The chances of an error are lower, and you can be sure that your joint will be placed in the optimal position.
