For patients suffering from osteoarthritis of the knee, Sharon Regional Medical Center offers a cutting-edge, CT-free robotics-assisted alternative to traditional knee replacement surgery that is designed to provide improved patient outcomes. 

NAVIO Surgical System

The NAVIO Surgical System is unlike other robotics-assisted platforms as the system doesn’t require a pre-operative CT-scan. Instead, our highly-skilled orthopedic joint replacement surgeons collect patient-specific data during the procedure to build a 3D model of the patient’s knee, which is used to plan the surgery. 

During the procedure, our surgeon uses a handheld robotics-assisted tool (the NAVIO handpiece) to position knee implants exactly as intended, based on the patient-specific data previously collected. This extra layer of planning and accuracy is designed to enable optimal implant placement for better patient outcomes.

The benefits of a NAVIO robotics-assisted surgery include:

  • Improvement in the function, feel and potential longevity of the total knee implant due to the added level of accuracy of the placed implant
  • Individualized plan to fit the patient’s unique anatomy and needs
  • No CT-scan required, which means less radiation exposure to the patient
