Knee Surgery

 

Senior Couple Speed Walking

The knee is the largest joint in the body - and one of the most easily injured.

Orthopedic surgeons at Beverly Hospital perform a range of knee surgeries, including:

  • Repairing tears of the meniscus (the thin cartilage that cushions the knee)
  • Repairing torn ligaments (ACL and MCL)
  • Removing loose fragments of bone or cartilage
  • Partial or total joint replacement of the knee
  • Minimally invasive knee surgery
  • Robotic Surgery

Arthroscopy

Our orthopedic surgeons are skilled in the use of arthroscopy to diagnose and treat knee disorders. Arthroscopy, a minimally invasive procedure, allows our surgeons to look inside the knee using a thin flexible scope, to make a thorough examination and to determine the source of the problem.

During the procedure, the surgeon can also insert surgical instruments through other small incisions in the knee to remove or repair damaged tissues.

Robot-Assisted Surgery

Beverly Hospital offers patients robotic surgery as an additional surgical option for total knee replacement. Robotic surgery allows our highly trained orthopedic surgeons to personalize your treatment, while improving the accuracy of placing your knee implant.

The benefits of robotic surgery include:

  • Better placement of the knee implant
  • Faster recovery time
  • Less pain after surgery
  • Lower risk of complications after surgery
  • Shorter stay in the hospital
  • Smaller incisions during surgery with less scarring and blood loss

If robotic surgery is appropriate for your situation, patients can expect to have a series of X-rays to create a 3D model of your knee. This 3D model will help our team prepare for your knee replacement surgery.

During surgery, the robotic system has a camera and optical trackers that will be attached to your leg. It is like a global positioning system (GPS) for legs. It keeps track of your legs, so if your leg moves even a fraction of an inch, the robot can sense it and adjust.
