Coimbatore Rex hospitals performs knee surgery with innovative robotic technology

Rex Hospitals recently performed knee surgery utilising innovative robotic technology, marking a significant advancement in orthopaedic care.
The patient, a 65-year-old woman from Krishnagiri, had been suffering from severe right-sided knee pain for the past three decades. Despite the debilitating nature of her condition, she had been unable to seek treatment due to family responsibilities and work commitments. However, as her mobility worsened, hindering her ability to stand, walk, and perform daily activities, she sought medical attention.
Upon examination and thorough investigation, medical experts discovered multiple loose bodies resembling pebble stones within her knee joint through X-ray, CT, and MRI scans. This rare condition had eroded her knee cartilage, resulting in crippling arthritis.
Under the guidance of robotic technology, surgeons at Rex Hospitals successfully removed over a hundred loose bodies from both the front and back of the knee joint. 
Utilising the Cuvis robotic joint replacement system, they executed a precise knee replacement procedure, addressing the extensive bone defects and cartilage loss with resurfacing implants.
Dr. C Rex, the lead surgeon, expressed astonishment at the size and quantity of loose bodies found within the patient's knee joint, emphasising the role of advanced robotic systems in achieving spot-on accuracy during surgery. The patient, now free from pain and able to walk normally, lauded the remarkable outcome of the procedure, crediting the hospital's adoption of cutting-edge technology for her renewed mobility.
The successful surgery underscores Rex Hospitals' commitment to leveraging the latest medical innovations for the optimal benefit of patients. Dr. C. Rex reiterated the hospital's dedication to providing top-notch care through the utilisation of state-of-the-art equipment and techniques.
