Frequently Asked Questions

What is orthopaedic robotic surgery?

Orthopaedic robotic surgery, or robot-assisted surgery, is a procedure in which your surgeon uses revolutionary technology to create a personalized surgical plan and make precise, calculated movements to give you an enhanced recovery.

What types of surgeries are robot-assisted?

Hip, knee, and spine procedures can be performed by TOC surgeons with the assistance of a robotic arm. Specifically, your surgeon may perform any of the following procedures with robotic assistance:

  • partial knee replacement
  • total knee replacement
  • total hip replacement
  • spinal fusion
  • surgical treatment of scoliosis
How does orthopaedic robotic surgery work?

A 3D CT-based planning software lets your surgeon choose the best implant options, based on your anatomy, to ensure a safe and predictable procedure that is charted down to almost every movement.

At the time of your joint replacement or spine surgery, your orthopaedic surgeon will guide a robotic arm that is
programmed to only follow your predetermined surgical plan. The robotic arm does not perform your surgery. Your highly skilled surgeon controls the robotic arm, and it cannot operate without your surgeon guiding it.
