Robotic surgery – also called robot-assisted surgery – gives Dr. Maine to perform many kinds of complex procedures with more precision and control than traditional methods. Using a specialized robotic arm, Dr. Maine can insert devices into position with the highest degree of accuracy. Even in challenging situations with distorted anatomy, she can maximize placement techniques to get better fixation through smaller incisions with less blood loss. Dr. Maine controls the arm at all times and uses high-definition stereotactic cameras to monitor the position of the robotic instruments, guiding them to the optimal position.
Robotic surgery lets Dr. Maine perform delicate and complex procedures that may have been difficult or impossible with other methods. In addition, robotic surgery allows for more consistently accurate cuts in knee operations and generally provides better results outcome for patients.
