BCH Offers Robotics-Assisted Knee Surgery
Dr. Craig Mahoney is performing robotics-assisted total and partial knee surgery using the NAVIO® Surgical System at Boone County Hospital. The first surgery using the unit is slated to take place some time this Spring.
Unlike other robotics-assisted platforms, the NAVIO system does not require a pre-operative CT scan. Instead, Dr. Mahoney will collect patient-specific data during the procedure to build a 3D model of the patient’s knee. This is used to plan the surgery. To perform the procedure, a handheld robotics-assisted tool is used to position NAVIO-specific cutting guides exactly as intended, based on the patient-specific data previously collected. This extra layer of precision and accuracy is designed to enable optimal implant placement for better patient outcomes.
