Robotic technologies are used more widely in the world with each passing day. In parallel with the developments in technology, robots are widely used in medicine. In parallel with these developments, robotic technology has started to gain a place the field of orthopedics, as well. The number of orthopedic surgical operations performed using robotic technology is increasing day by day. Robotic technology is used in hip and knee joint replacement surgeries in the field of orthopedics. It is expected to be used in tumor removal, shoulder, and spine surgeries in the near future.
Robotic surgery involves auxiliary systems used in knee or hip replacement surgeries. The operation is planned, the patient’s data are evaluated, and the operation is performed with the help of robotic systems under the control of the surgeon. As even an experienced orthopedic surgeon is likely to adjust implant positions with a certain margin of error, new innovations have been sought. The most important features of Robotic Surgery include that the bone incisions planned to be made in the surgery are designed preoperatively in the computer environment, component positions are adjusted optimally, and bone incisions are made flawlessly with the help of a robotic arm. Thanks to positioning the implant optimally, implants lasts longer and they wear and loosen after a longer period of time. The entire procedure is performed by your physician. Robotic surgery requires special training and certification.
