VELYS™ Robotic-Assisted Solution
Center for Sports Medicine & Orthopaedics specializes in techniques and technologies that effectively relieve joint pain while also mitigating the high costs of hospital-based facilities. That’s why we’re excited to offer the VELYS Robotic-Assisted Solution as an option for knee replacement surgery.
Chronic knee pain is commonly caused by wear and tear of the joints, otherwise known as osteoarthritis (OA). OA affects approximately 30 million Americans every year, and by 2030, almost 70 million Americans are projected to be at an increased risk for OA. Left untreated, it can even make simple tasks like climbing stairs nearly impossible.
Lifestyle changes such as weight loss, increased strength, and improved flexibility have well-documented beneficial effects on overall joint health, and there are non-invasive and minimally invasive approaches that can mitigate pain from a degenerative knee. Physical therapy or over-the-counter medications may be the first treatment option for knee pain, but when the pain becomes severe or interferes with daily activities, knee replacement may be an option.
