What is Robotic-Assisted Knee Surgery?

Robotic-assisted knee surgery is a minimally invasive procedure where
Dr. Daley uses a robotic system to perform your surgery.

What is Robotic-Assisted Knee Surgery

The robotic system consists of a surgeon's console, robotic arms, a high-performance vision system, and special surgical instruments. A computed tomography (CT) scan is taken before the surgery to create a 3D model of the affected knee joint. This is interpreted by the system, which accurately guides Dr. Daley.
