Robotic surgery adds expense to the procedure without documented improvement of
outcomes. Unless unable, all knee replacement patients are walking the day of
surgery to avoid complications.
Unfortunately, this article is more marketing than fact. As a doctor, I can
tell you there is no publish data to support these claims. I would hope that
doctors would be more honest when dealing with new technology. The fact is this
significantly increases the cost of care without changing the outcome. In fact,
all patients are up walking the day of surgery to avoid known complications such
as blood clots and pulmonary embolism. Please, allow this comment to be posted
