Knee replacement is performed for patients who suffer from knee arthritis who do not get adequate relief with other forms of treatment. A knee replacement removes the ends of the joint that have lost cartilage and replaces this with metal implants. This procedure is highly successful and allow patients to have a better quality of life and function. New technology has come to fruition that allows most of these procedures to be performed with a robotic assistance. This technology allows for better planning of the procedure, improved placement of components, and potentially less pain and longer lifespan of the implant.
