Robotic knee replacement surgery is typically recommended for cases where traditional non-surgical treatments, such as physical therapy and medication, have not provided sufficient relief from knee pain and mobility limitations. While robotic knee replacement can address a range of knee conditions, here are some common types of knee injuries and conditions that may require robotic knee replacement:
1. Osteoarthritis: This is the most common reason for knee replacement surgery. Osteoarthritis is a degenerative joint disease that occurs when the cartilage that cushions the ends of bones in the joint deteriorates over time. This can lead to pain, inflammation, and decreased mobility.
2. Post-Traumatic Arthritis: This type of arthritis can develop after a severe knee injury, such as a fracture or ligament tear. The initial injury can disrupt the normal mechanics of the joint, leading to arthritis and the need for knee replacement.
3. Avascular Necrosis: This condition occurs when the blood supply to the bone is disrupted, leading to bone tissue death. Avascular necrosis can affect the knee joint, causing pain and joint deterioration.
4. Meniscus Tears: The meniscus is a cartilage in the knee that acts as a shock absorber. Tears in the meniscus can lead to pain, instability, and restricted movement. In some cases, severe meniscus damage may necessitate knee replacement.
5. Knee Fractures: Severe fractures that affect the joint surface of the knee may lead to long-term joint damage and the need for knee replacement surgery.
6. Knee Instability: Chronic instability of the knee, often due to ligament damage, can lead to ongoing pain and difficulty with walking. In some cases, knee replacement may be considered to restore stability.
7. Failed Previous Knee Surgeries: In cases where a previous knee surgery, such as a partial knee replacement, has not provided the desired outcome, a robotic knee replacement may be considered to address the persistent issues.
It's important to note that not all knee injuries or conditions automatically require knee replacement surgery. Each patient's situation is unique, and the decision to undergo knee replacement, robotic or otherwise, should be made in consultation with Dr. Anoop Jhurani.
