Oswego Health, the Only Outpatient Surgery Center in Oswego County Continue to Perform Successful Robotics-Assisted Knee Arthroplasty Using the NAVIO Surgical System™

 

(Oswego, NY – September 30, 2020) The orthopedic surgeons from the Center for Orthopedic Care at Oswego Health continue to be the only surgeons in Oswego County to bring robotically-assisted knee arthroplasty to the surgery center. In less than twelve months, a total of 24 knee arthoplasties with the assistance of the NAVIO™ Surgical System have been performed.

The NAVIO™ Surgical System incorporates hand-held robotics and 3D images of the patient’s knee. This allows the surgeon to collect patient-specific information, establish spatial boundaries for the surgical instrument, and allow for more accuracy removing the damaged surfaces of the knee.

The system assists with properly balancing the ligaments of the joint and accurately positioning the implant leading to potentially better outcomes and longevity. Unlike other robotics systems, patients are not required to undergo a pre-operative CT-scan with the NAVIO™ Surgical System from Smith & Nephew.

“I am proud to share that our orthopedic team is stronger than ever before as we’ve successfully recruited the best providers to expand access to care for Oswego County,” stated Chief Medical Officer, Duane Tull, MD. “There’s no longer a reason to travel far for the orthopedic care your patients need, especially when there are same day appointments available at Oswego Health and we’ve got state-of-the-art technology.”

Individual results may vary. The NAVIO system is not for everyone. Children, pregnant women, patients who have mental or neuromuscular disorders that do not allow control of the knee joint, and morbidly obese patients should not undergo a NAVIO procedure. Knee replacement surgery is intended to relieve knee pain and improve knee functions. However, implants may not produce the same feel or function as your original knee. There are potential risks with knee replacement surgery such as loosening, fracture, dislocation, wear and infection that may result in the need for additional surgery. Longevity of implants depends on many factors, such as types of activities and weight. This information is for educational purposes only and is not intended as medical advice. Consult your physician for details to determine if NAVIO robotics-assisted procedure is right for you.
