Recently the St George Surgical Center (SGSC) invested in the NAVIO robotic-assisted surgical system for full and partial knee replacement surgery to add to its collection of state-of-the-art technology for use by staff surgeons.
By now, you’ve probably read about the NAVIO robotic system here on ViewOn and other publications, on billboards, or on your phone or computer. But many who had previous replacements wonder if robotic assisted knee replacement can help them and if Medicare will pay for the second opinion and the revision. The answer to both questions is most likely, “Yes.”
NAVIO works in conjunction with the surgeon’s hands to achieve more precise positioning of the knee implant than replacing the knee without the robotic assistance. NAVIO helps the surgeon improve precision and accuracy by enabling them to accurately plan the surgery in the operating theater, improve positioning of the implants for a better fit, and to reduce the risk of errors during the procedure while shortening recovery and rehab time.
If you are one of many local area residents who remain unsatisfied with the pain reduction, performance and reliability of a recently replaced knee and would like a second opinion or to learn about other options, our surgeons can help.
