Computer Navigated Knee Surgery in Kirkland, WA

Recent advances in medical technology have allowed the development of computer navigation. During knee replacement surgery, light-emitting diodes are attached to the leg. These devices communicate directly with a camera attached to a computer and allow the surgeon to create a digital reproduction of the entire surgery.

Knee Replacement 3D Imaging

Computer navigation provides real-time 3-D imaging and guides decision making during knee replacement surgery. Component position, range of motion, and overall limb alignment are viewed during every step of the procedure. This technology allows for subtle abnormalities to be quickly identified and corrected.

Computer navigation allows precise alignment of your knee, potentially reducing wear and leading to a longer lasting knee replacement. It also helps minimize surgical dissection and reduces blood loss during surgery. Less invasive surgical techniques are leading to improved function and faster rehabilitation after knee replacement surgery.
