NAVIO Seminar Registration
Learn about robotic knee replacement surgery
Time: Oct. 4, 6:30 p.m.
Place: West Tennessee Bone & Joint Clinic-Stonebridge, 219 Stonebridge Blvd.
People suffering from joint pain in their knees can learn about a new robotics-assisted, knee replacement surgery that provides greater accuracy during surgery and improved results.
Dr. Jason Hutchison, a Board-Certified Orthopedic Surgeon at West Tennessee Bone & Joint Clinic, P.C., will talk about the NAVIO Surgical System that he and other West Tennessee Bone & Joint physicians in Jackson are doing at the Physicians Surgery Center and Jackson-Madison County General Hospital.
“With any total knee arthroplasty surgery, final placement of the implant is critical to providing both the function and longevity that today’s patients expect,” said Dr. Hutchison. “With the NAVIO system I’m able to see real-time data throughout the surgery that is designed to help place each implant in the optimal location based on each patient’s unique anatomy.”
Unlike other robotics-assisted platforms, the NAVIO system does not require a pre-operative CT-scan. Instead, the surgeon collects patient-specific data during the procedure to build a 3D model of the patient’s knee. This is used to plan the surgery. To perform the procedure, a handheld robotics-assisted tool (the NAVIO handpiece) is used to position NAVIO-specific cut guides exactly as intended, based on the patient-specific data previously collected. This extra layer of precision and accuracy is designed to enable optimal implant placement for better patient outcomes.
West Tennessee Bone and Joint Clinic physicians in Jackson began using the NAVIO robotics-assisted surgery for both total and partial knee replacement in July.
Many patients can get relief from knee pain with partial knee replacement surgery, said Dr. Hutchison. “They don’t have to wait in pain until they are a candidate for full knee replacement.”
