Dr. Michael Messieh, MD is now offering the latest techniques in robotic assisted partial knee replacements.
Partial knee replacement is a potential alternative to total knee replacement for patients with early to mid-stage osteoarthritis that is generally limited to one side of the knee. The procedure removes and replaces the damaged portion of the knee with an implant, sparing the cruciate ligaments that are vital to knee stability, and preserving healthy bone and cartilage. In contrast to total knee replacement, partial knee replacement offers patients less pain, a more normal feeling knee, smaller incisions and quicker rehabilitation. As an outpatient procedure, this will allow you to leave the surgical center the same day, with no overnight hospital stay. Partial knee replacements are performed from the SIDE approach.
Using traditional surgical methods, a surgical saw is used, removing the diseased bone and cartilage. This method has been considered technically challenging. Advanced surgical techniques using robotic assistance have been developed to provide a higher level of accuracy and precision. The robotic assistance through an advanced computer program that relays on precise information about your knee to a robotics-assisted hand-piece used by the surgeon during the procedure. Consult Dr. Michael Messieh for details to determine if a robotics assisted knee procedure is right for you.
