Computer Assisted Knee Replacement (CAS TKR)
Computer assisted total knee replacement
In a knee replacement (TKR), the knee cartilage which is worn out is removed and replaced with implants (prosthesis) made from metal and plastic. TKR gets rid of the knee pain, restores knee function and improves the patient's quality of life.
If a TKR is performed accurately, the prosthesis can last 15-20 years. Computer Assisted Knee Replacement (CAS TKR) achieves better accuracy/ precision in the operation and gives more consistent results.
