With the NAVIO system, there is no special pre-operative preparation or post-operative recovery protocol. The NAVIO system does not perform the procedure; rather it assists the surgeon by providing accuracy and precision — crucial to the success of the surgery.
The NAVIO® Surgical System.
Partial Knee Replacement, Compared To Total Knee Replacement, Offers:
Improved patient satisfaction
— 19% of total knee patients do not have their expectations met4
— 94% of partial knee patients have their expectations met5
Less Post-operative Pain6
Lower Risk of Complications7
Improved Range of Motion.
Partial knee replacement has been shown to result in a greater range of motion over total knee replacement7
Knee feels More Normal8
Shorter Hospital Stay6
Faster Recovery Time7
Minimally Invasive Surgical Techniques9
More Options in the Future.
Partial knee replacement offers more options in the future, where osteoarthritis can advance and further treatment, such as a total knee replacement may be needed
Most insurance plans cover
partial knee replacement. Call your insurance provider to verify coverage
Less removal of bone and cartilage
No removal of ligaments
What’s My Next Step?
Ask your surgeon:
Is my knee pain caused by osteoarthritis?
Am I a candidate for NAVIO robotics- assisted partial knee replacement?
How does my age, lifestyle, and overall health affect my treatment options?

Being pain free where I had spent the last 37 years in a significant amount of pain — this is the biggest gift to me.
The beauty of this particular technology is that it removes what it needs to and nothing else. It's accurate.
