7 Ways Robotic Surgery May Help Your Joint Pain

If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with a condition that may require surgery, you owe it to yourself to learn about all your options, including some of the most noninvasive surgical treatments available using robotic surgery.

Through the use of robotic-assisted surgery, surgeons are now able to offer minimally invasive and more precise options for many complex surgical procedures, including knee and hip replacements.

For most patients, minimally invasive, robotic-arm assisted joint replacement surgery offers numerous benefits:

  • Reduced post-surgery pain
  • Less blood loss
  • Fewer and smaller scars
  • Increased precision
  • Faster recovery
  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Less risk of infection
