NAVIO™ robotics-assisted knee surgery at Werndale Hospital

Werndale Hospital is now offering robotics-assisted knee surgery using the Smith & Nephew Surgical System.

The NAVIO Surgical System aids the surgeon in planning and executing your knee replacement surgery, while potentially improving recovery times. You could be back to normal activities, including sports, as much as six months faster than with traditional surgery.

The NAVIO™ system allows our surgeons to operate with even greater precision, allowing for a more bespoke approach.2 This can mean less pain, a more natural feeling knee, and a quicker recovery process.3 The technology also bypasses the need for a CT scan.4

If you are considering full or partial knee replacement surgery, the NAVIO™ surgical system may be the most appropriate choice for you.

While traditional knee replacement surgery is safe and successful, this advanced technology has added benefits, including:

An experience tailored to your needs


Your treatment journey at The Highfield Hospital will be bespoke from start to finish, tailored to your individual needs. This is also true of your knee replacement surgery. Using 3D digital technology, your consultant is able to fit your implant according to your exact anatomy. They will choose an implant that best meets your needs, including options that allow you to keep more of your natural bone and ligaments, which can help you regain function faster after surgery, and lead to a knee that feels better in the long term.

Greater precision and accuracy for optimum results


The CORI surgical system gives your consultant a highly detailed three-dimensional view of your knee joint. This helps them choose the best implant for you and allows them to create a tailored plan for how and where it will be placed according to your exact anatomy.

During the procedure, your consultant will use the CORI surgical system to perform the procedure as they have planned, with the ability to make any improvements they see a need for as the operation happens. The robotics will move as they move, combining innovative technology with the skill and expertise of an orthopaedic consultant. The system sends information about your knee to the robotics-assisted handpiece more than 300 times per second. This allows for more precision than ever before when it comes to removing damaged parts of your knee joint, balancing your joint, and fitting the implant.

Durability and long-lasting results

Traditional knee replacements last for an average of 15 to 20 years.

Implants that are designed to be used with the CORI Surgical System are made with an exceptionally durable material called Oxinium Oxidized Zirconium, which has been shown to last significantly longer than traditional implants.

The precision and accuracy CORI robotics-assisted knee surgery offers also helps ensure long-lasting results beyond the traditional timeframe. The ability to fit the implant more accurately to your individual anatomy offers the best chance for a natural feeling knee and encourages better function and mobility long term.

A faster recovery journey


CORI robotics-assisted knee surgery also provides a smoother, faster recovery time. With optimised accuracy and precision, your function and movement will improve faster than with traditional surgery.

A faster recovery time means a faster return to normal life and the activities you love.
