You Don’t Have To Live With Knee Pain Anymore
The physicians at Shasta Regional Medical Center use the latest robotics-assisted
technology — the NAVIO Surgical System — to perform robotics-assisted
partial knee replacement.
If you’re one of the estimated 30 million Americans suffering from
osteoarthritis, discover how partial knee replacement using robotic assistance
delivers accurate and precise results that can help you return to the
activities you love

How do I know if I am a candidate for robotics-assisted partial knee replacement
using the NAVIO system?
Although the best treatment for each patient must be determined individually,
typical candidates share the following characteristics:
Knee pain on the inner knee during activity
Start-up knee pain or stiffness caused by activities initiated from a seated position
Knee pain is limiting activity on more days than not
No longer finding relief through non-surgical treatment options
The NAVIO system is not for everyone. Children, pregnant women, patients
who have mental or neuromuscular disorders that do not allow control of
the knee joint and morbidly obese patients should not undergo a NAVIO
procedure. Knee replacement surgery is intended to relieve knee pain and
improve knee functions. However, implants may not produce the same feel
or function as your original knee. There are potential risks with knee
replacement surgery such as loosening, fracture, dislocation, wear and
infection that may result in the need for additional surgery. Longevity
of implants depends on many factors, such as types of activities and weight.

advice. Consult your physician for details to determine if a NAVIO robotics
assisted procedure is right for you. The NAVIO system is intended to assist
the surgeon in providing software-defined spatial boundaries for orientation
and reference information to anatomical structures during orthopedic procedures.
The NAVIO system is indicated for use in surgical knee procedures, in
which the use of stereotactic surgery may be appropriate, and where reference
to rigid anatomical bony structures can be determined. These procedures
include unicondylar knee replacement (UKR), patellofemoral arthroplasty
(PFA), and total knee arthroplasty (TKA). The NAVIO system is indicated
for use with cemented implants only.
