Knee Replacement Surgery is a surgical procedure conducted to relieve pain by replacing the affected surfaces of the joint. It is most often recommended when conventional methods do not help to diminish the pain. Knee replacement surgery involves removing the damaged part of the knee joint and replacing it with artificial surfaces that form the new surfaces of the joint. The surgeon uses a robotic arm to cut the bone and insert the knee components using the virtual model as a guide. 

Using robotic surgery, surgeons can plan personalized surgeries using 3D images. The risk of infection is also reduced since fewer instruments are used than in conventional surgery. As a leader in healthcare, Aster Hospitals is assisted with the most advanced minimal access robotic facilities for knee replacement surgery which makes an individual’s life easier through early rehabilitation and quicker recovery. An implant placed more accurate results in a more natural feeling after surgery, which translates into better long-term results.
