Centennial Hospital is pleased to offer the latest robotic technology in joint replacement surgery. This advancement transforms the way knee replacements are performed.
Total knee replacements in the United States are expected to increase 189% by 2030, yet studies have shown that approximately 20% of patients are dissatisfied after conventional surgery. This new robotic technology enables surgeons to have a more predictable surgical experience with increased precision and accuracy which could result in less pain, a decreased need for painkillers, less physician therapy, and reduction in length of hospital stay.
“As part of this technology, we utilize a 3D CT which allows me to create a personalized plan based on each patient’s unique anatomy all before entering the operating room,” says Dr. Nathan Faulkner, an orthopedic surgeon with Centennial Hospital. “This transformative technology allows me to validate the blueprint and make any necessary adjustments while guiding the robotic arm to execute the plan.”
Centennial Hospital is proud to be one of only a few hospitals in Colorado to offer this new, advanced robotic technology for knee replacement surgery.
