Dr. Scott Strasburger to Present a Robotics-Assisted Knee Replacement Seminar at Syracuse Area Health

The Lincoln, Nebraska, surgeon will answer questions about the NAVIO robotics-assisted surgical method for partial and total knee replacement patients.

Lincoln, NE (May 3, 2019) – Lincoln, Nebraska, orthopaedic specialist and sports medicine expert Dr. Scott Strasburger is one of only a handful of Nebraska-based practitioners trained with the NAVIO Surgical System, a revolutionary new robotics development designed to assist during partial and total knee replacement surgery. On May 21st, Dr. Strasburger will be presenting at Syracuse Area Health to discuss the treatment and its ramifications for knee surgery patients.

“Traditional surgical methods are technically very challenging, requiring manual positioning of tools throughout the surgery and the implant placement process,” Dr. Strasburger says. “The accuracy of the placement procedure affects the ultimate outcome – in other words, the mobility the patient has after the surgery. ”

The NAVIO system works in conjunction with a skilled surgeon to help more accurately position the knee implant based on each patient’s unique anatomy. Throughout each surgery, Dr. Strasburger receives constant updates delivered from the system to the NAVIO robotics-assisted handpiece used during the procedure.

The real time patient-specific data provided allows the damaged surfaces of the knee to be carefully removed without damaging adjacent bone or tissue, and helps to position the implant for better joint balance and increased mobility.

“The advanced surgical technique that NAVIO robotics-assistance provides helps us deliver a higher level of accuracy, since we can fully map the knee joint in advance and create the entire surgical plan based on personalized data,” Dr. Strasburger said. “There’s no need to keep suffering with knee pain. I believe the NAVIO Surgical System allows me to give patients their lives back, with less pain, a more normal feeling knee joint, and a faster rehabilitation than was formerly available.”

This free seminar will be held Tuesday, May 21, 2019 from 6:00 – 7:30 P.M. at the Syracuse Area Health Main Lobby, located at 2731 Healthcare Drive, Syracuse, NE 68446. Dr. Strasburger will give a short presentation and be available to answer questions about the NAVIO system. A light meal will be provided.

Individual results may vary.

Not all patients are candidates for the NAVIO Surgical System. Discuss your condition and implant options with your surgeon. Individual results of joint replacement vary. Implants are intended to relieve knee pain and improve function, but may not produce the same feel or function as your original knee. There are potential risks with knee replacement surgery such as loosening, wear and infection that may result in the need for additional surgery. Patients should not perform high impact activities such as running and jumping unless their surgeon tells them that the bone has healed and these activities are acceptable. Early device failure, breakage or loosening may occur if a surgeon’s limitations on activity level are not followed. 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. This information is for educational purposes only and is not intended as medical advice. Consult your physician for details to determine if one of these technologies is right for you.
