Better Surgical Outcomes

CHI Health Good Samaritan and CHI Health Mercy Council Bluffs offer robotic-arm assisted technology for more precise joint replacements

Robotic-Arm Assisted Orthopedic Surgery

The latest advancement in joint replacement surgery is here!

CHI Health Mercy Council Bluffs is the only hospital in the Omaha metro to offer the latest technology in total knee and partial knee replacement surgery. This robotic-arm assisted technology provides you and your surgeon with a personalized surgical plan based on your unique anatomy. This technology is also offered in Kearney at CHI Health Good Samaritan for partial and total knee replacements as well as total hip replacement.

Robotic-Arm Assisted Knee Replacement (Partial and Total)

Both Mercy Council Bluffs and Good Samaritan offer knee replacements using the robotic-arm assisted technology. Partial knee replacement and total knee replacement procedures are designed to relieve the pain caused by joint degeneration from osteoarthritis. Using the robotic-arm assisted surgery system, the surgeon can more accurately place and align the implant in this minimally-invasive procedure.

Through CT-based 3D modeling of bone anatomy, surgeons can use this system to create a personalized surgical plan and identify the implant size, orientation and alignment based on each patient’s unique anatomy. This type of knee replacement may:

  • Facilitate ideal implant positioning that can result in a more natural feeling knee following surgery
  • Result in a more rapid recovery and shorter hospital stay than traditional knee replacement surgery
  • Promote a rapid relief from pain and return to daily activities

Robotic-Arm Assisted Total Hip Replacement

Offered at CHI Health Good Samaritan, robotic-arm assisted total hip replacement is an option for adults suffering with either non-inflammatory or inflammatory degenerative hip joint disease, enabling surgeons to more accurately plan and place implant components.

As described above for knee replacements, this type of hip replacement starts with a personalized surgical plan and allows for more precision and better outcomes.
