When working with shoulder fractures or arthritis that causes bone loss, it is critical to identify the shoulder's strongest spot. Getting all of this data from a noninvasive CT scan simplifies a lot of the planning.
FREMONT, CA: Orthopedic surgeons now have access to new instruments because to technological advancements. Computer-assisted surgery, for example, allows shoulder surgeons to do surgery remotely before entering the operating room.
Computer-assisted surgery, also known as robotic surgery, allows surgeons to design treatments and control and manipulate surgical tools using a software system. During some shoulder replacements and reverse replacements, surgeons can employ this system. Technology is crucial in assisting the surgeon in determining the best implant placement. When working on the shoulder, just like the hips or knees, the surgeon wants to place the implant where there is the most bone to keep it stable.
Computer-assisted systems can be beneficial in a variety of ways. A preoperative CT scan image of the shoulder is used in the 3D interactive application. The surgeon can then rotate the photos around and examine the shoulder from various angles. When working with shoulder fractures or arthritis that causes bone loss, it is critical to identify the shoulder's strongest spot. Getting all of this data from a noninvasive CT scan simplifies a lot of the planning. Surgeons in typical circumstances do not have as much information and are forced to make decisions based on what they see once the surgery begins.
Precision Improves the Stability of The Placement
The coordinates are set, and GPS navigation guarantees that the placement is exact. It is not quite a full-fledged robotic experience. With the help of GPS navigation, the surgeon places the implant by hand. The long-term use of the shoulder is where the operation differs. When one gets an implant, they are concerned about it loosening over time. With this system, one can be more confident that the best bone area was identified and that it will last a long time. The surgeon must learn the technology and software to execute a computer-assisted surgery. They can provide this service to patients after receiving training with these instruments. Knee, ankle, and hip replacements can all benefit from this approach. It has been around for roughly five years in orthopedics.
