Joint pain can be a barrier that keeps you from enjoying the things you love, which is why the orthopedic experts at Castle Rock Adventist Hospital are offering innovative technology in joint replacement surgery.

The new robotic-arm assisted technology allows the surgeons at Castle Rock Adventist Hospital to transform the way total knee replacements are performed. This allows our providers to have a more predictable surgical experience because of the increased precision the robotic-arm assisted technology provides.

“Robotic technology for total knee replacement is the wave of the future,” said Anthony Sanchez, MD, at Castle Rock Adventist Hospital. “Robotic-assisted total knee arthroplasty, helps the surgeon accurately and safely perform bone cuts, removing the arthritis, which allows precise balancing of the total knee implants. A well-balanced total knee results in great clinical outcomes and increases the longevity of the implants, therefore decreasing the need for future revision.”

Clinical studies have shown that using this technology demonstrated the potential for patients to experience less pain, have less need for inpatient physical therapy, reduction in the length of hospital stay, improved flexion and soft tissue protection, compared to manual techniques. All to get you back to doing the things you love faster.

“I enjoy using the latest technology in total knee replacement,” said Shawn Nakamura, MD, at Castle Rock Adventist Hospital. “I feel that robotic assisted technology is the future of total joint replacement. The robotic-arm assisted technology allows me to place the knee replacement components more accurately than older manual techniques.”
