Active Again – Fast
Knee replacements are needed when the cartilage in the joints wears out. Bad knees can be very painful and swollen and can interfere with daily living.
Quad-sparing knee replacement
Quad-sparing knee replacement surgery enables you to start rehab before you leave the hospital. In fact, therapists have you on your feet within hours after the procedure. Quad-sparing knee replacement surgery is a minimally invasive procedure that does not involve cutting the quadriceps tendon. The technique requires only a 3- to 4-inch incision. The same artificial joint used in conventional knee replacements is fit into place.
New robot-assisted technology pioneered at Virtua allows our surgeons to create a 3-D model to pre-plan and customize your procedure based on your anatomy. We can preview the alignment of your new knee and consider key anatomic landmarks before we make an incision. Once your surgery begins, the robotic arm guides the surgeon exactly along the roadmap, ensuring a highly accurate alignment and placement of your implant.
