With robotic prosthesis surgery, which is becoming increasingly common in the world, the curvature and movement limitation of the knee are calculated in millimeters, ensuring that the prosthesis fits exactly to the knee. Prof. from the Department of Orthopedics of MedicalPark Hospitals Group. Dr. said, ”Scientific studies advocating robotic surgery show that surgeries performed with this technique give successful results.”

When problems such as fluid loss, calcification, cartilage tissue deterioration in the knee joints progress and the person becomes unable to do even simple tasks in his daily life, a prosthesis is recommended if there is no response to other treatments. MedicalPark International Izmir Hospital Orthopedic Specialist Prof. Stating that knee replacement surgeries, which have started to be applied with robotic technique in recent years, make it easier for the patient to move. Dr., “With a well-made knee replacement, a person has the opportunity to meet their own needs, even to do a number of small sports such as walking, jogging,” he said.


Orthopedic Specialist Prof. said that the difference of the robotic prosthesis surgery technique, which is becoming increasingly common in the world, from the classic knee prosthesis surgery is that the robot guides the surgeon, adding: “With the help of sensors and cameras in the robot, the curvature and movement restriction in the knee are calculated with an accuracy that the human eye cannot detect, and the bone incision is made accordingly. Thus, the prosthesis is ensured to fit the string exactly. With the trial prostheses, the latest status of the knee is checked and the real prosthesis is placed. Here, the surgeon does the work again, but it is guided according to the millimetric calculations of the robot.”


Orthopedic Specialist Prof. Dr. spoke about the scientific studies defending robotic surgery as follows: “Research argues that the placement mechanics of the prosthesis in robotic prosthetic surgeries are performed with a much more precise method, it shows that it gives successful results. Our experiences and observations are also in this direction. Thanks to the robot, we know very well what we cut and how much. According to the results of these studies, in prostheses applied in robotic surgery, patients start moving earlier and can experience less pain. The foreign body sensation caused by the prosthesis becomes less, so that the patient can return to his social life in a short time.”
