Robotic-assisted joint replacement surgery.
Sometimes it’s good to have more of something. Other times, it’s better to have less. With robotic-assisted joint replacement surgery, you can have it all.
Our nationally recognized surgeons use robotic technology to perform less-invasive, more-precise procedures than can be done by hand alone. This results in less recovery time and more time getting back to the activities you love.
It’s one way we provide the expert joint replacement care you need, right here.
We partner with well-known orthopedic practices throughout the northwest suburbs – Barrington Orthopedic Specialists, Northwest Orthopedic Surgery, Illinois Bone and Joint Institute and Orthopedic Associates.
These experts know how to put the latest technologies to work for you—and they’re available right here in the neighborhood. Robotic joint replacement is an innovative technology in orthopedic surgery, poised to bring greater levels of accuracy—and better outcomes—to knee, hip and shoulder procedures. Here are some of the advantages:
Every knee is different, so our surgeons create a 3D model of your unique hip, shoulder or knee joint. This technology assists them in placing the new joint with a more customized alignment. This provides less wear on the replacement joint, greater joint stability and faster recovery time.
Computer navigation enables your surgeon to detect differences as small as half a millimeter and half a degree, giving unprecedented levels of accuracy and precision.
Your surgeon’s goal in joint replacement is to place the implant in the most accurate alignment with proper soft tissue balancing. Robotic-assisted joint replacement provides precise numbers and angles for a robotic guide to use during surgery. This results in less soft tissue manipulation and trauma to the joint.
When the little things you enjoy become difficult or impossible to do without pain, it’s time to find a solution. Sometimes—like in the case of Wheeling resident Pam Garceau—the solution includes total knee replacement of both the right and left knees. Her two surgeries were completed in less than two years, one done traditionally and one robotic-assisted. She’s now back doing the things she loves, like working in her garden.
Our nationally recognized care team includes fellowship-trained orthopedic surgeons, specially trained nurses, physical and occupational therapists and clinical care coordinators.
Our orthopedic team includes four surgeons who perform robotic-assisted joint replacement surgeries, giving you more time to enjoy the activities you love, and less worry about aching joints.
If you’re not a candidate for robotic-assisted surgery, we have specialists in traditional joint replacement surgery as well. Get the expert care you need, right here.
