The Total Knee Arthroplasty with the system of digitally - driven - passive robotic navigation is a minimally invasive technique.
With this minimally invasive procedure not only we increase the accuracy of the necessary os- teotomies, but it also strengthens the implants reliability.
The knee joint ́s flexion movement shows better balance both through a precision osteotomy and through the possibility of adapting the ligamentous tension of soft tissue in postoperative kinematics. This particular technique presents a reduced risk for infection, inflammation or pulmonary embolism. On one hand, it reduces significantly the time of hospitalisation while, on the other, it maximises the possibility for early mobilisation.
The significant reduction of blood-loss makes the need for intraoperative or postoperative transfusion “rare“ if non existent.
Arthroscopy is a minimally invasive technique widely used not only for diagnostic but also for therapeutic purposes. The arthroscopic rehabilitation of ligament, meniscus and soft tissue is the appropriate choice in cases of meniscus tear, ACL, knee OCHS, rotator cuff and labral shoulder and in cases of hip and ankle joint ailments.
In recent years, the biological treatment of musculoskeletal disorders in combination with minimally invasive techniques is gaining momentum with excellent results.
