About the NAVIO◊ Surgical System
Seton Medical Center now offers robotics-assisted partial knee replacement using the Smith & Nephew NAVIO Surgical System, a CT-free platform that delivers consistent and accurate results.
Compared to total knee replacement, partial knee replacement has been shown to offer patients:
• less pain (1 - see citations below)
• a more normal feeling knee (1)
• smaller incisions (2)
• quicker rehabilitation

Individual results may vary. There are risks associated with any surgical procedure including NAVIO-enabled Partial Knee Replacement. NAVIO is not for everyone. 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. Consult your physician for details to determine if NAVIO is right for you.
