Summit Orthopedic Specialists has recently incorporated VELYS Digital Surgery into its repertoire of surgical techniques. VELYS Digital Surgery is a cutting-edge technology that is revolutionizing the way joint replacement surgeries are performed. Dr. Sasaura is the Sacramento area’s foremost expert surgeon in the use of this incredible new tool for joint replacement. In this article, we will provide an overview of VELYS Digital Surgery and the benefits it offers. Additionally, we will address the question of who is a candidate for this procedure, and what the recovery and results look like.
VELYS Digital Surgery is an innovative surgical technique that combines advanced imaging technology and robotic-assisted surgery to create a precise and personalized joint replacement.
During the procedure, the surgeon is able to create a 3D virtual model of the patient's knee anatomy. This allows for optimal implant placement as well as ligamentous balance for each patient's unique anatomy which results in a more natural feeling knee. The surgeon then uses a robotic arm to help place the implants with a level of accuracy that is not possible with traditional surgical techniques.
The precision and accuracy of VELYS Digital Surgery offer several benefits to patients. First and foremost, the personalized approach to joint replacement means that each patient receives an implant that is tailored to their unique anatomy.
This can result in better function and increased longevity of the joint. Additionally, the robotic-assisted surgery allows for smaller incisions, less tissue damage, and a quicker recovery time compared to traditional surgery. Patients often experience less pain and are able to return to their daily activities sooner.
VELYS Digital Surgery is suitable for all patients who are in need of total knee replacement. It is best suited for patients who are in good overall health and have realistic expectations of the surgical outcome. Your orthopedic surgeon will conduct a thorough evaluation to determine if VELYS Digital Surgery is the best option for you.
Recovery from VELYS Digital Surgery is typically quicker than traditional joint replacement surgery. Sacramento VELYS Digital Surgery patients are typically able to leave the surgery center the very same day of the procedure. Patients immediately begin walking with the aid of a walker bearing full weight. Physical therapy is an important part of the recovery process and can help to restore strength and mobility to the joint. Patients are typically able to return to normal walking within four to six weeks after surgery, and more demanding activities, such as sports, by 12 weeks.
The precision and accuracy of VELYS Digital Surgery have resulted in high levels of patient satisfaction and improved outcomes. Studies have shown that patients who undergo VELYS Digital Surgery experience less pain and faster recovery times compared to traditional surgery. Additionally, the personalized approach to joint replacement has resulted in longer-lasting outcomes and fewer complications.
