FEATURED SURGERY: Robotic-arm Assisted Technology in Primary TKA

    Yogesh Mittal, MD, from The Orthopaedic Center in Tulsa, Oklahoma, performs a primary total knee arthroplasty with robotic assistance in a procedure broadcast to attendees at ICJR’s Transatlantic Orthopaedic Congress last fall.

    Dr. Mittal’s patient is a 65-year-old woman with varus deformity evident on radiographs and on examination. She has some flexion contracture and patellofemoral disease. Dr. Mittal’s plan is to use a posterior stabilized knee implant.
