You Don’t Have To Live With Knee Pain Anymore

Knoxville Hospital & Clinics is the first and only facility in Central Iowa to offer robotics-assisted partial knee replacement using the NAVIO system.

If you’re one of the estimated 30 million Americans suffering from osteoarthritis1, discover how partial knee replacement using NAVIO robotic assistance delivers accurate and precise results that can help you return to the activities you love.2,3

How do I know if I am a candidate for robotics-assisted partial knee replacement using the NAVIO system?

Although each patient must consult with a physician individually, typical partial knee replacement candidates share the following characteristics:

  • Knee pain on the inner knee during activity

  • Start-up knee pain or stiffness caused by activities initiated from a seated position 

  • Knee pain is limiting activity on more days than not 

  • No longer finding relief through non-surgical treatment options
