Capital Regional Medical Center offers robotic-arm assisted knee & hip surgery with its robotic system. Through CT-based 3D modeling of bone anatomy, surgeons can use the system to create a personalized, precise surgical plan and identify the implant size, orientation and alignment based on each patient's unique anatomy. The system also enables surgeons to virtually modify the surgical plan intra-operatively and assists the surgeon in executing bone resections.
This system is changing the way joint replacement surgeries are performed by providing each patient with a personalized surgical experience based on their specific diagnosis and anatomy, including less tissue trauma. Capital Regional is proud to offer this transformative technology across the joint replacement service line to perform total knee, total hip and partial knee replacements to our patients.
Using a virtual 3D model, the system allows surgeons to create each patient's surgical plan pre-operatively before entering the operating room. During surgery, the surgeon can validate that plan and make any necessary adjustments while guiding the robotic-arm to execute that plan.
Total joint replacement of the knee, hip, shoulder, or elbow is a major undertaking for any patient. Capital Regional Medical Center offers vital education, trained medical staff, and ongoing physical therapy to support the patient throughout recovery. Our orthopedic surgeons are the best in their field. Coupled with our modern operating rooms, patients receive the area's best orthopedic treatment. For patients having hip replacement surgery, our Hana Table allows a less invasive, anterior approach. A less invasive procedure allows patients to bend their hips more quickly after surgery, ensuring a more rapid return to normal function. Capital Regional Medical Center is also certified by the Joint Commission for Orthopedic Hip and Knee Joint Replacement.
Joint Commission – Orthopedic Hip and Knee Joint Replacement Certified
Hip and Knee Orthopedic joint replacement programs are certified by the Joint Commission under the standards for Disease-Specific Care programs. The standards are not specific to joint replacement, but are a general framework for a well-run disease-management program. Certification requirements for joint replacement programs address compliance with consensus-based national standards, effective and consistent use of evidence-based clinical practice guidelines for appropriate patients, and analysis of clinical performance measures specific to the patient population.
