Robotic-Assisted Knee Replacement technology lands in Tasmania, exclusive to Petterwood Orthopaedics.

The robotic-assisted system started rolling out at Calvary Hospital in late October 2017 for both total and partial knee replacements.

The Navio Robot uses a sophisticated computer navigation system coupled with handheld robotics to enable precise and accurate bone removal and implant positioning. Each patient’s surgery is customised providing a patient specific solution to your knee arthritis.

A more accurate procedure tailored to each patients unique anatomy may lead to greater post-operative satisfaction and less risk of future revision surgery.

Mr Petterwood is part of the Limited Release Team bringing the Navio system to the Australian market. He is the only surgeon in Tasmania with access to the Navio Robotic-Assisted technology.
