The Orthopaedic Center at Brandon Regional offers:

  • Latest minimally invasive joint replacement surgical options, including robotic joint replacement surgery

  • Total Knee Replacement Surgery—this procedure replaces the knee with an artificial joint
  • Total Hip Replacement Surgery—this procedure replaces the hip with an artificial joint
  • Anterior Approach Hip Replacement Surgery—minimally invasive and muscle sparing approach to hip replacement surgery
  • Total Shoulder Replacement Surgery—this procedure treats shoulder arthritis by implanting an artificial joint

Robotic Assisted Joint Replacement Surgery

Robot-assisted joint replacement is designed for those suffering with inflammatory or non-inflammatory degenerative joint disease (DJD).

Robotic Joint Replacement benefits may include:

  • More accurate placement of your joint implant using the surgeon-controlled robotic-arm system
  • Faster recovery from surgery due to minimally invasive techniques used
  • Decreased risk of the implant and bone abnormally rubbing together – this may improve the lifetime of the implant

Robot-assisted joint replacement is designed to achieve a new level of precision using the latest techniques in total joint replacement. If your surgeon determines that you are a good candidate for robot-assisted joint replacement, he or she will schedule a computed tomography (CT) scan of your hip or knee one to two weeks prior to your surgery date. This is used to create your unique surgical plan for optimal implant placement.
