NAVIO Partial Knee Replacement at TriHealth Evendale
Dr. Michael Swank, a leading provider of computer assisted & minimally invasive knee surgery, performs partial knee replacement surgery at Good Samaritan Hospital at Evendale using the NAVIO Surgical System. The NAVIO Surgical System provides accuracy, flexibility and confidence utilizing real-time imaging (without the need for preoperative CT), hand-held robotics, a portable cart, and multiple partial and total knee implant options in an economically sound platform.
NAVIO Robotic Assistance Provides Accuracy and Precision
The NAVIO system is an advancement in the way orthopedic surgeons perform partial knee replacement. The system works in conjunction with skilled hands to achieve the precise positioning of the knee implant based on each patient's unique anatomy. This added level of accuracy can help improve the function, feel and potential longevity of the partial knee implant.
Through an advanced computer program, the NAVIO system provides robotic assistance that relays precise information about your knee to a robotics-assisted handpiece used by our surgeons during the procedure. By collecting patient-specific data, boundaries are established for the handpiece so the surgeon can remove the damaged surfaces of your knee, balance your joint, and position the implant with greater precision.
