Robotic and traditional open or laparoscopic (minimally-invasive) surgeries are very similar. Regardless of which surgical technique is used, your surgeon removes damaged tissue in your joint and replaces it with an artificial joint. The difference is that it's done with assistance from a robotic arm or handheld robotic device (depending on the robotic system used for your surgery).
PCI surgeons perform both traditional and robotic-assisted joint replacement surgeries, utilizing the Mako Surgical System or the Rosa Surgical System.
Your surgeon will work with you and help you decide which surgical technique is best for you and your unique situation.
