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.

Understanding Your Knee Replacement with the VELYS™ Robotic-Assisted Solution

A knee replacement is a procedure performed to fix the damaged parts of a knee with different types of implants. Advanced technology like robotic-assisted devices can help your surgeon perform a precise knee replacement surgery personalized for your specific anatomy.

The VELYS™ Robotic-Assisted Solution assists your surgeon in optimizing surgical outcomes. It does this by using intra-operative data that’s unique to you. Your surgeon utilizes the technology during your procedure to enhance the accuracy and precision of your knee replacement to help you start moving again.

How does the VELYS Robotic-Assisted Solution work?

The VELYS Robotic-Assisted Solution uses a variety of advanced technologies to ensure the surgeon has the information and tools they need to perform a highly accurate and precise knee replacement. This solution is designed to:

  • Aid your surgeon by accessing state-of-the-art technology to provide insights for real-time decision making.
  • Help your surgeon remove the damaged bone with accuracy. This robotic-assisted device does not move or operate on its own.
  • Use an infrared camera and optical trackers to help your surgeon gather the necessary data about your anatomy to achieve a high level of precision.

Benefits of Robotic Knee Replacement

Many people experience benefits of using advanced technology for your knee replacement. During your procedure, the technology gathers details and data related ot your knee to help find a favorable implant fit. The robotic-assisted technology may also allow your surgeon to perform a knee replacement tailored to you, while providing both precision and accuracy during the procedure.

Robotic assisted technology may offer:

  • A greater range of motion (how well you can bend an flex your knee)
  • Less pain compared to traditional methods
  • Faster recovery times – including reduced length of stay, hospital readmissions and health visits)
