Robotics-Assisted Knee Surgery is Coming to BCH

February 14, 2019

Dr. Craig Mahoney will soon be performing robotics-assisted total and partial knee surgery using the NAVIO® Surgical System. 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.

To schedule an appointment with Dr. Mahoney at the Boone County Hospital Specialty Clinic, call (515) 433-8300.
