Q. What benefit does an OMNIBotics procedure provide to me as compared with conventional total knee replacement?
A. Computers have improved how we perform complex tasks in our daily lives, and this includes joint replacement surgery. Traditional knee replacement often relies on manual instruments and imperfect visual assessments. OMNIBotics uses specialized tools along with a computer to achieve results with greater accuracy and precision.* For those undergoing total knee replacement surgery, this means a better chance of improved knee implant alignment which could extend the life of the implant as well as improve knee joint functionality.
