Surgeons with Lehigh Valley Orthopedic Institute can now use robotic technology to assist in replacing the body’s largest joint – the knee.
The Orthopedic Institute has six robotic systems in place – three of the VELYS™ Robotic-Assisted Solution from DePuy Synthes, a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson, and three of Stryker’s Mako SmartRobotics™ System – at select hospitals across Lehigh Valley Health Network (LVHN). Robotic technology can assist a surgeon in precision cutting and balancing during surgery.
Robotic knee replacements result in less pain, less need for inpatient physical therapy, reduction in length of hospital stay and improved knee flexion and tissue protection, resulting in better outcomes and faster return to normal activity.
LVHN is committed to continued investment to acquire the latest surgical technologies and offer the best possible care to its patients. Orthopedic Institute physicians are the leading providers for joint replacement surgeries in the communities served by LVHN, making LVHN the most trusted orthopedic provider in the region.
