Computer – assisted knee replacement surgery (CAS) IR

This computer or laser-assisted surgery helps doctors to operate more accurately, causes minimal scarring and reduces tissue trauma. Patients are also able to recovery more rapidly after surgery. Computer-assisted surgery makes joints more durable and efficient, so that they may be used for 15-20 years. In addition, the artificial joint used provides a base to support loads and motions, allowing it to bend more effectively, reducing wear and extending productive life.

In addition, using computers to aid artificial joint replacement, the Artificial Joint Center also uses computers for Spinal Surgery, reconstructive bone surgery, high tibial osteotomy, and reconstructive knee ligament surgery.

Treatment of Spinal Degenerative Disease

Drilling and Cementing : An aperture is drilled and cement is sprayed into the spine in order to strengthen the bone.

Endoscopic Surgery : An aperture is drilled and the broken disc resting on the nerves is surgically removed, reducing surgical aches and hospital recuperation time.

Minimally – Invasive steel Implant Surgery: The bone resting on the nerves is removed and a steel implant is inserted into the bone, connecting degenerative spinal joints so that they do not shift. The minimally invasive techniue reduces back muscle pain so that patients may recover more rapidly and also reduces backache.

Vertebral Disc Replacement Surgery : Treatment of degenerative disc disease or intervertebral disc herniation by spinal fusion has shown good result in faster than normal degeneration of upper or lower connected vertebral discs.

Navigator Assisted Arthroscopic ACL reconstruction

Development of new technologies have proven to be beneficial to human, it is undeniable that they provide more convenience and comfort for instance the GPS tracking device in modern automobiles which could help drivers saving time by leading to the shortest route or avoiding traffic congested area . Navigation has also been used in medical fields for more than 10 years in operative procedures. Earlier, navigator technology was only used in colon surgery but only in the last couple of years that it has been developed for the knee replacement surgery. Navigator assisted surgery helps doctors to operate more accurately, reduce complication, causes minimal scarring, and rapidly recover after surgery.

Anterior Cruciate Ligament injury (ACL), injury to the knee, in most patients is caused by accidents during sport activities or motorcycle riding and etc. Patients will suffer a painful with immediate swelling at the point of impact until they cannot run or walk. Once the pain and swelling are gone, without a proper treatment, patients will have trouble walking since the ligament for proper movement has been damaged. Immediate and proper treatment for such injury helps to increase the success rate of the surgery since the longer the damage to the ligament is left untreated the less chance that patient will be able to fully recovered.

Treatment for Anterior Cruciate Ligament injury is the use of new operation technology. In the past, the treatment was to open the knee for ACL reconstruction which took longer period of time to recover and left a big scar on patient’s knee. For the last 10 years, in most modern hospitals, Arthroscopic surgery has been widely used in arthroscopy. It is a minimally invasive surgery which is performed by using arthroscope inserted into the joint at knee through a small incision. The only scar remained is where doctor inserted arthroscope and another for surgical instruments, each with a size of approximately 4 mm. The camera at the tip of the arthroscope transmits pictures from inside the knee to a TV monitor in the operating room, allowing the orthopedic surgeon to look at the structures inside the joint directly, detailed, and to operate more accurately. The artificial ligament is very similar to natural ligament. Recovery time varies highly from case to case but in most cases, patients could return to their normal activities within a week. However, there will still be swelling around the knee and the swelling can take anywhere from 7-15 days to be completely settled. It is important to wait until swelling disappears before doing any serious exercises or extensive walking.
