Innovative Joint Replacement Procedures

Joint replacement surgery has significantly evolved over the years, thanks to advancements in technology. At OrthoSC, we are committed to providing our patients with the latest innovations to ensure better outcomes and enhanced recovery. Staying at the forefront, specialty-trained joint replacement surgeons Dr. Brian Blair, Dr. Michael Bohan, Dr. Justin Brothers, Dr. Thomas Chambers, Dr. Tyler Noble, Dr. Peter Ramsey, and Dr. Todd Tupis offer leading-edge technologies in joint replacement: robotic-assisted joint replacement, AI-assisted joint replacement, and knee replacement with the Persona IQ® smart implant.

Robotic-Assisted Joint Replacement

Robotic-assisted joint replacement represents a groundbreaking approach that combines the expertise of orthopedic surgeons with the precision of robotics. At OrthoSC, we were proud to be the first in the area to offer outpatient robotic joint replacement, and our experts utilize state-of-the-art robotic systems to perform these procedures.

By using advanced imaging techniques and real-time feedback, robotic systems allow surgeons to create personalized surgical plans tailored to each patient's unique anatomy. During the procedure, the doctor uses the plan and robotic assistance to perform the surgery and place the implants with unparalleled accuracy for optimal alignment.

With robotic-assisted joint replacement at OrthoSC, patients can benefit from:

  • Customized surgical planning for enhanced precision
  • Accurate implant placement for improved implant longevity and enhanced functionality
  • Minimally invasive techniques leading to quicker recovery

AI-Assisted Joint Replacement

Artificial intelligence (AI) is revolutionizing the field of orthopedic surgery by providing valuable insights and predictive analytics to surgeons. At OrthoSC, we integrate AI-driven technologies into our joint replacement procedures to optimize decision-making and improve patient outcomes.

AI algorithms analyze vast amounts of patient data, including medical history, imaging scans, and surgical outcomes, to identify patterns and trends. This data-driven approach enables surgeons to make more informed decisions regarding surgical techniques, implant selection, and postoperative care.

Moreover, AI-powered surgical assistants can assist in real time during procedures, offering valuable guidance and predictive modeling to enhance surgical precision and efficiency. By harnessing the power of AI, the surgeons at OrthoSC aim to deliver personalized, data-driven care that maximizes patient satisfaction and long-term success.

Key benefits of AI-assisted joint replacement at OrthoSC include:

  • Data-driven decision-making for optimized surgical outcomes
  • Real-time assistance and predictive modeling during procedures
  • Personalized care tailored to each patient's unique needs

A Smart Knee: Persona IQ Knee Replacement Implant

The Persona IQ smart knee implant offers unprecedented capabilities for monitoring and adjusting implant performance after surgery. OrthoSC is at the forefront of this technological revolution and the first in the region to offer it, pioneering the use of smart implants to enhance patient care and outcomes.

Smart implants have sensors and microelectronics that continuously monitor pressure, movement, and alignment within the joint. This real-time data is transmitted wirelessly to a monitoring system, allowing your orthopedic surgeon to track the implant's performance remotely and intervene if necessary.

The key features and benefits of knee replacement with a smart implant at OrthoSC include:

  • Continuous monitoring of implant performance for early detection of issues
  • Remote tracking and adjustment of implant parameters for optimized outcomes
  • Enhanced patient safety and satisfaction through proactive implant management
