Robotic Assisted Surgery
With the utilization of computer navigation and robotic technology, we are now able to provide surgical procedures that are focused on your unique anatomy. A CT scan of the diseased hip or knee joint is taken, and a surgical plan developed based upon the specific pathology. This imaging scan is uploaded and a 3D model of your hip or knee is created. This 3D model is used to pre-plan and assist your surgeon in performing your joint replacement procedure.
In the operating room, your surgeon follows your personalized surgical plan while preparing the bone for the implant. The robotic assistance prevents excess bone removal and guides precise resection to allow for optimal component positioning.
Cartilage Restoration Techniques
Articular cartilage injuries are common. While diffuse cartilage loss (osteoarthritis) may require joint replacement after failure of conservative options, focal cartilage lesions can be treated by other surgical techniques. Current surgical options for treatment of chondral injuries in the knee include: osteochondral autograft transfer, osteochondral allograft transplant, and autologous chondrocyte transplantation. These techniques utilize a patient’s own cartilage or donor cartilage to replace a cartilage defect or osteochondral lesion. Our surgeons at Orthopaedic Medical Group of Tampa Bay are well trained in all techniques of cartilage repair and transplantation and are constantly changing techniques to utilize the best options for our patients.
