ROSA® Knee System 

For Total Knee Replacement

Preoperative Education

Candidates for ROSA total knee replacement have the same preoperative experience as most total knee patients, which includes medical/dental evaluation and blood/urine/electrocardiogram tests. However, unlike traditional knee replacement methods, ROSA Knee System for total knee replacement involves a series of X-rays to create a three-dimensional (3D) model of the patient's knee anatomy. The 3D model allows surgeons to personalize the specifics of the patient's joint replacement surgical plans before the procedure.

Rehabilitation

Our medically supervised orthopedic rehabilitation and physical therapy services at Princeton Baptist Medical Center are customized to meet every patient's needs after joint replacement surgery. Our physical therapy program aims to help patients with pain-free movement and improved function and independence.

What Causes Joint Pain?

Joint pain is a common complaint, especially among adults, sending thousands of people to the hospital yearly. Injuries or conditions, such as long-lasting osteoarthritis, can cause joint pain. Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis. It occurs when the cartilage within a joint begins to break down and wear away. The fragments of the cartilage or the bones eventually rub against each other, causing pain, swelling and stiffness. Bone spurs or extra bones may form around the joint, which weakens and stiffens the joint's ligaments and muscles. These changes worsen over time. In some cases, people have reduced function and disability.

Is ROSA Knee System an Option for Me?

If you are suffering from persistent knee pain, the ROSA Knee System is an innovative solution and a minimally invasive surgical option that may help improve your quality of life and may lead to shorter hospital stays and faster recovery times. ROSA, which stands for Robotic Surgical Assistant, is designed to help your surgeon restore your natural knee with accurate bone resections and limb alignment using data-driven insights and surgical techniques.

ROSA Knee System for total knee replacement is for people suffering from chronic joint pain caused by arthritis, advanced end-stage joint disease, or a previous sports or traumatic injury who have not experienced significant relief with nonsurgical treatments like medications, physical therapy and activity modifications. 

What To Expect

Personalized Surgical Plan
ROSA Knee collects data before and during surgery that may affect the knee implant fit. These data-driven insights help your surgeon plan for and carry out personalized surgery based on your individual needs.

During Surgery
During your procedure, ROSA Knee uses a camera and optical trackers attached to your leg, like a detailed global positioning system (GPS), to locate exactly where your knee is in space. ROSA Knee's real-time data and your surgeon's skill help position your knee implant based on your unique anatomy.

After Surgery

Following surgery, you may have to stay in the hospital based on your surgeon's recommendation and recovery plan. Although recovery varies from one patient to another, minimally invasive surgery patients may have less post–operation pain and shorter hospital stays and recovery compared to an open knee replacement.

Benefits May Include

  • Less post-operative pain
  • Shorter hospital stay and recovery period
  • Smaller incisions and less blood loss
  • Precise placement of knee implant
