NAVIO® Robotics-Assisted Surgery

Accurate and Precise Implant Placement1

Our physicians use the NAVIO system to perform robotics-assisted partial and total knee replacement. They chose this technology because it allows them to individualize each patient’s knee replacement surgery, and use robotic assistance for accurate and precise results.1

With the NAVIO system, there is no special pre-operative preparation or post-operative recovery protocol. The NAVIO system does not perform the procedure; rather it assists the surgeon by providing accuracy and precision — crucial to the success of the surgery.

Watch this video to see how the NAVIO system is used to perform robotics-assisted partial knee replacement:

Why Choose the NAVIO System?

  • Consistent results1
  • Accurately placed implants1
  • Customized implant planning
  • CT-free technology
    (One CT-scan is equivalent to radiation exposure seen in 48 chest radiographs2)

What’s My Next Step?

Ask your surgeon:

  • Is my knee pain caused by osteoarthritis?
  • Am I a candidate for NAVIO robotics- assisted partial or total knee replacement?
  • How does my age, lifestyle, and overall health affect my treatment options?
