The NAVIO robotic-assisted total knee application is designed to deliver consistent and accurate results through the utilization of a surgeon controlled robotics-assisted hand piece, coupled with NAVIO specific cut guides. This unique combination yields an intuitive and efficient workflow for the entire surgical team. In addition, the versatile NAVIO planning software enables precise implant alignment and ligament balance, without the need for a pre-operative CT scan. Eliminating the dependency on pre-operative imaging allows the surgeon to seamlessly plan for either a unicompartmental or total knee procedure at the time of surgery.

"I have experience with several robotic systems and my experience with the NAVIO Surgical System has been phenomenal. Both NAVIO UKA and TKA applications allow me freedom as a surgeon, unlike other robotic options, because it is imageless. I can easily plan and correct for significant deformities and retained hardware with confidence. I love the direct interface with the system itself, putting me back in control.

Additionally, the cost of the system including the capital investment, lack of advanced imaging and its portability make it affordable for both hospitals and ASCs" says Jimmy Chow, M.D, Director of Orthopaedics: Hip & Joint, Phoenix St. Luke's Medical Center.
