Robotic knee replacement surgery.
Understanding your knee replacement with the VELYS™ Robotic-Assisted Solution.
What do the latest developments in orthopaedic surgery at Samaritan Healthcare mean for you? If you need a knee replacement, Dr. Leo Chough, our highly skilled, on-staff orthopaedic surgeon, uses the VELYS™ Robotic-Assisted Solution.
What are the benefits of VELYS Robotic-Assisted Surgery? A knee replacement is a procedure performed to fix the damaged parts of a knee with different types of implants1. Advanced technology such as robotic-assisted surgery devices can help your surgeon perform a precise knee replacement surgery personalized for your specific anatomy2.
Every knee is different, as is every patient requiring a knee replacement procedure.
The VELYS™ Robotic-Assisted Solution assists your surgeon in optimizing surgical outcomes. It does this by using intra-operative data—information/data he receives while the procedure is underway—that’s unique to you. Your surgeon utilizes the technology during your procedure to enhance the accuracy and precision of your knee replacement to help you start moving again2.
How does the VELYS Robotic-Assisted Solution work?
The VELYS Robotic-Assisted Solution uses a variety of advanced technologies to ensure the surgeon has the information and tools they need to perform a highly accurate and precise knee replacement2. This solution is designed to:
- Aid your surgeon by accessing state-of-the-art technology to provide insights for real-time decision making.
- Help your surgeon remove the damaged bone with accuracy. This robotic-assisted device does not move or operate on its own.
- Use an infrared camera and optical trackers to help your surgeon gather the necessary data about your anatomy to achieve a high level of precision.
The VELYS Robotic-Assisted Solution works exclusively with the ATTUNE® Knee System. The ATTUNE Knee System has been provided to more than 1 million patients worldwide and is designed to deliver a greater range of motion and faster recovery, so you can get back to living the life you want to live3,4,8.
