State-of-the-art, Robotic assisted surgery is the latest technological advancement in adult elective knee joint replacement.
Dr Rogers has undergone extensive training with both the Smith and Nephew Navio and CORI robotic systems, and is excited to bring these skills to his private practice.
Robotic technology enables a tailor-made surgical plan for each patient, customised to their unique anatomy and individual needs. Utilising the robotic system, the surgeon is able to work with a real-time, patient-specific plan, so the new hip or knee implant can be placed with the utmost precision.
Robotic surgery can be less invasive, affords greater accuracy and improves surgical safety by reducing the risk of accidental injury to nearby healthy tissues.
These benefits, combined with less post-operative pain and discomfort, shorter hospital stays and quicker return to work and activity make it the most advanced surgical treatment option available today.
In hospital physiotherapy will focus on walking (with a walking aid), transferring from the bed and stair training. Mobility is extremely important to aid in preventing the formation of blood clots and avoiding other potential complications. You will be expected to mobilise with the physiotherapist on the same day of your joint replacement. This will be full weight-bearing as your pain and discomfort allow.
