Robotic Orthopedic Surgery

About Robotic-Assisted Orthopedic Surgery at Mercy

When you’re having joint replacement surgery, you want your new joint to feel as natural as possible. Robotic-assisted orthopedic surgery is tailored to your unique anatomy, so you can achieve the best results. Ask your Mercy orthopedic surgeon if it’s right for you.

Benefits of Orthopedic Robotic Surgery

With robotic-assisted surgery, a CT scan is used to create a 3D model of your joint. This allows your surgeon to precise target damaged cartilage and bone. During surgery, surrounding healthy tissues are spared, and implants are precisely aligned to your joint. Benefits of robotic-assisted orthopedic surgery include: 

  • Greater surgical precision
  • Smaller incisions
  • Protection of healthy cartilage and bone
  • Optimized implant positioning
  • Less pain
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Faster recovery and return to normal activities
