The Balancing Act


Put Knee Pain Behind You

With robotic-assisted partial knee replacement surgery, you can get back to living

Did you know that Osteoarthritis affects 1 in 16 Americans, the majority of whom are women?

Osteoarthritis occurs when there is a breakdown in the cushioning cartilage between joints, such as the knee. When this cartilage wears down, bones begin to rub against each other, causing pain, swelling, stiffness and damage to other parts of the knee.

While the exact cause of OA is unknown there are several factors that may increase risk of developing OA1:

• Age: The strongest risk factor for OA. While OA can start in young adulthood, in these cases it is often due to joint injury
• Gender: OA affects both men and women. However, before age 45, OA occurs more frequently in men; after age 45, OA is more common in women
• Joint injury: Traumatic injury to a joint increases risk of developing OA
• Obesity: Chances of developing OA generally increase with the amount of weight the body’s joints have to bear
• Joint Alignment: People with joints that are not aligned correctly, like bowlegs, dislocated hips, or double-jointedness, are more likely to develop OA in those joints

Total knee replacement has long been the most standard treatment but robotic technology is enabling greater use of partial knee replacement, which has shown to have these benefits over total knee replacement: Less pain, shorter hospital stay, quicker rehabilitation.

The Navio® Surgical System is the next generation in robotic-assisted partial knee replacement solutions.

It is ideal for patients looking for a robotic-assisted option because it doesn’t require a CT scan, saving time and unnecessary exposure to radiation. The surgeon works off of a 3D image of your knee and how it moves, and uses robotics to resurface the damaged bone.

- Navio is the only CT free robotic assisted system for partial knee replacement
– Navio uses data collected intra-operatively to create a surgical plan unique to each patient
– Navio is one of two surgical systems that is indicated for unicondylar knee and patellofemoral joint replacement
– Navio is a new technology that has been commercially available since late 2012
