What are the benefits of orthopedic surgery robots for doctors, patients?


Robots are increasingly being developed for use in surgical procedures to help surgeons provide greater precision, especially during surgical procedures that require fine movements that may be beyond the range of a human hand. In addition, robots enable surgeons to provide greater accuracy and repeatability with the goal of achieving better outcomes.

Orthopedic surgical robots are a class of surgical robots subdivided into three main types of surgeries where orthopedic surgical robots are used, i.e., joint replacement surgeries, spine surgeries, and orthopedic trauma surgeries. Among them, robot-assisted spine surgery is an important application of orthopedic surgical robots. In traditional surgery, a needle is inserted into each vertebra, and fluoroscopy is used to confirm whether the position is good or not, and then the needle is taken out to hit the screws. This way down, the first is more time-consuming; secondly, there will be deviation in beating with bare hands. In addition, the surgeon in surgery a lot of fluoroscopy, so that the patient and the surgeon exposed to a lot of radiation.

The orthopedic surgical robot works with the 3D C-arm, based on 3D image data, using surgical planning software, preoperative simulation of the state of the implant, guiding the surgeon to pre-surgical planning, assisting in the assessment and timely adjustment of the surgical path planning and design, the mechanical arm precise movement to the planning position, with the help of guiding sleeve, to provide the surgeon with a stable path of the guide pin placement, one of the main advantages is that it can be through a smaller incision One of the main advantages is that it allows the surgery to be performed through a smaller incision (usually 1-2 cm).

For patients, the use of orthopedic surgical robots has the following benefits:

① Shorter hospital stay and faster patient recovery (due to smaller incisions).

② Lower risk of infection.

③ Reduced blood loss and reduced need for blood transfusion.

④ Reduced pain and scarring.

⑤ Shorter time for patients to return to normal activities after surgery, allowing for a faster return to normal function.

⑥ Less likelihood of implant failure and potentially less need for revision surgery.

For the surgeon, the surgeon is able to “see, hit and hold”.

Visibility: A sophisticated optical tracking system provides a magnified, high-definition view of the surgical area.

Accurate: Orthopedic surgical robots assist in the precise positioning of implants or surgical instruments with sub-millimeter accuracy.

Hold it steady: The surgeon utilizes a robotic arm to operate, eliminating the effects of the surgeon’s hand tremor.

Orthopedic surgical robots to improve surgical precision, shrink the doctor’s learning curve and other advantages will become an important device in the field of future surgery, Perlove Medical orthopedic navigation robot with self-developed and produced 3D C-shaped arm (with independent core independent intellectual property rights), with the help of the integration of adaptive alignment technology, to achieve automatic alignment and registration, the system is more compatible, more comprehensive information matching, the alignment process is more convenient and efficient.
