Navigated joint replacement. With computer-navigated joint replacement, surgeons use a 3D computer imaging system that allows them to see the unique anatomy and mechanics of each patient’s joint.
Navigation Joint Surgeon uses special instruments which are attached to the patients. Using the surgical navigation system (camera), the location and the movement of the patient’s knee/hip is tracked and navigated throughout the surgery. The system provides a feedback of the instrument location which is particularly useful in situations especially in minimally invasive surgeries where the surgeon cannot see the tip of the instrument.
