Restoration of knee alignment is considered one of the mainstays of a successful total knee arthroplasty (TKA) in order to achieve a neutral mechanical axis passing from the center of femoral head thorough the center of the knee joint line to the center of the ankle.
In the last 10 years, many studies show that robotic knee alignment is more accurate than any other conventional technique.
Robotic systems include passive, semi-active, and active systems with a robotic arm, robotic guided cutting jigs, and robotic milling systems.
For total and partial knee replacement, robotic systems may:
- Help surgeons avoid surgical errors
- Increase accuracy in mechanical alignment for more natural kinematics
- Decrease variability
- As the latest step in robotics technology, Cuvis combines image-free planning, guidance, and accurate execution to help optimize kinematics and gap balancing
