Precision is the key for a successful total knee replacement. For this reason, surgeons are embracing robotic-assisted total knee replacements. Pinnacle Orthopaedics utilizes ROSA Knee robotic technology to bring robotic knee replacement surgery to Canton, Woodstock, Marietta, East Cobb and Hiram.
Below, we will go in-depth to explain ROSA, what it is exactly, as well as what you might expect before and during your operation, recovery, risks, and advantages.
What is ROSA Robotic Total Knee Replacement?
ROSA is short for ‘Robotic Surgical Assistant’. It supports your orthopedic surgeon when they perform a total knee replacement. ROSA assists with bone resections and assesses the soft tissues, so the implant is successful.
ROSA robotic knee replacement is ideal for patients with early to mid-stage osteoarthritis. Osteoarthritis is a degenerative joint disease that causes cartilage breakdown in the knee. Common symptoms of the condition include knee pain, stiffness, and swelling that has not shown improvement with conservative treatments.
