Conemaugh Health System offers robotic-assisted total joint replacement surgery, which allows for customization to the unique shape and motion of your hip/knee. Orthopedic surgeons who are specially trained to use the system use it for total knee and hip replacement procedures transforming the way joint replacement surgery is performed.
Every hip/knee is unique. If you have tried nonsurgical treatments and your hip/knee pain continues, joint replacement may be necessary to reduce pain and restore functioning.
Benefits of robotic-assisted joint replacement may include:
- Smaller incisions
- Faster recovery
- Optimal implant placement
- Potentially reduced impact to surrounding soft tissue
- Dynamic joint balancing
It is important to note that in robotic-assisted joint replacement surgery, the entire procedure from planning to implantation is performed by an orthopedic surgeon. The robotic technology is an advanced tool that provides additional precision and accuracy for the surgery but does not replace the skill of the surgeon.
Our team of physicians specializing in orthopedic surgery are prepared to treat most orthopedic conditions, as well as provide consultations and second opinions. Conemaugh Health System's interdisciplinary team approach connects physicians, nurses, physical and occupational therapists, social workers, nutritionists and pharmacists in caring for orthopedic patients.
