Improved Outcomes Utilizing Advanced Robotic Arm Technology for UKA

Long-term data on knee replacements have demonstrated that patients prefer an ACL-preserving unicompartmental knee replacement (UKA) over a total knee replacement (TKA) and that they recover more rapidly. Yet, UKA accounts for only 10-12% of the knee arthroplasty cases in the US, even though up to 20% of knee replacements are eligible for a unicompartmental procedure.
