Orthopedic Hospital Schloss Werneck, @Schloss Werneck

Which clinics in Germany use robotic systems for knee surgery? 17 hospitals are listed here.

Does a robot increase the quality of surgery? Orthopedists in Germany have been dealing with this question for twenty years. Around the turn of the millennium, there was a knee robotic system which wasn’t very successful. Over the past few years, a new generation of knee robotic systems entered the market and is used more and more frequently in the operating room.

The robotic system offers different advantages: the cuts are more precise, the tendon tension can be measured during the operation and the patients suffer from less pain. All of this has already been proven in short-term studies. However, there are no long-term studies which verify this effect over many years. In this article, the advantages and disadvantages of surgery with a knee robot are discussed.
