navio-surgical-deviceDo you suffer from debilitating knee pain as a result of osteoarthritis? Tri-City Medical Center now offers the Navio Surgical System for partial knee replacement, helping patients get back on their feet with a shorter recovery time.

The Navio Surgical System, from Blue Belt Technologies, is changing the way surgeons perform partial knee replacements. Utilizing image-free principles, surgeons are able to map the patient’s anatomy and kinematics (movement) during the procedure for pinpoint accuracy. Surgeons employ a robotic-assisted handheld instrument to perform the procedure according the surgeon’s defined plan while the touchscreen monitor allows for a streamlined workflow.

This surgery is beneficial for patients suffering from early- to mid-stage osteoarthritis who might otherwise only be offered total knee replacement. Partial knee replacement, while traditionally a difficult surgery to perform with consistency, can lead to excellent intermediary outcomes for younger, osteoarthritis sufferers when done well.

Beyond the potential benefits of a partial knee replacement over a total knee replacement, the Navio system provides:

  • Consistent results
  • Highly-accurate implant placement
  • Customized planning
  • No CT radiation required
