Compared to conventional procedures, Robotic surgery is more accurate due to the level of precision it offers which is beyond the natural ability of the human eye. It minimizes the possibility of human error and inconsistencies, ensuring unparalleled accuracy and consistency. The minimally invasive approach results in smaller incisions, reduced blood loss and faster recovery times compared to conventional methods.

“Our goal is to provide access to cutting-edge robotic Knee Replacement Technology for all patients, regardless of their financial means," said Professor Arun Ranganathan, adding, “During the procedure, real-time mapping is conducted to generate a 3D model of the patient’s knee. While a robotic arm or device assists the procedure, surgeons remain in full control and their expertise enhances the clinical outcomes.” 

Experts emphasized on the comprehensive benefits of undergoing joint replacement surgery via Robotic technology.

"The Joint Robot system's surgical precision offers several benefits including more precise implant placement leading to a natural post-surgery feel, decreased risk of injury to surrounding tissues, reduced infection risk and early rehabilitation contributing to shorter hospital stay. The precise implant placement also enhances implant longevity, potentially reducing the need for future revisions,” concluded Dr. Prashanth BN, Orthopaedic Surgeon, Robotic Joint Replacement, Knee Replacement Surgery, Narayana Health City.
