Aster Centre for Robotic Joint Replacement operating under Aster Centre of Excellence in Orthopaedics & Joint Replacement combines the expertise of orthopedic surgeons with advanced robotic technology to provide precise and minimally invasive joint replacement surgeries.
Robotic joint replacement surgery offers several benefits to patients. These include reduced blood loss, shorter hospital stays, faster recovery times, improved joint function, and enhanced long-term implant durability. The minimally invasive nature of robotic-assisted surgery leads to less tissue damage, reduced post-operative pain, and a quicker return to daily activities.
The Centre for Robotic Joint Replacement utilizes advanced imaging techniques, such as CT scans or MRI, to create a detailed 3D model of the patient's joint. This model is used to develop a personalized surgical plan, considering the patient's unique anatomy, alignment, and joint mechanics.
Our centre offers a wide range of joint replacement procedures using robotic-assisted technology, including but not limited to:
- Robotic-assisted total knee replacement: Surgical procedure for patients with severe knee arthritis or joint degeneration, where the entire knee joint is replaced with prosthetic components.
- Robotic-assisted partial knee replacement: Surgical procedure for patients with localized knee arthritis, where only the damaged portion of the knee joint is replaced with prosthetic components.
- Robotic-assisted total hip replacement: Surgical procedure for patients with severe hip arthritis or joint degeneration, where the entire hip joint is replaced with prosthetic components.

How does robotic joint replacement surgery work?
Robotic joint replacement surgery involves the use of a robotic arm and advanced imaging technology. Prior to the surgery, a CT scan or MRI is taken to create a 3D model of the patient's joint. During the surgery, the surgeon uses the robotic arm, which is guided by the preoperative plan, to remove the damaged joint surfaces and precisely position the new joint implant.
What joints can be replaced using robotic technology?
Robotic technology can be used for joint replacement surgery in various joints, including:
- Knee joint: Robotic-assisted total knee replacement or partial knee replacement can be performed using robotic technology.
- Hip joint: Robotic-assisted total hip replacement or hip resurfacing can be performed using robotic systems.
- Shoulder joint: Robotic technology is also utilized for shoulder replacement surgery, including total shoulder replacement or reverse shoulder replacement.
