You Don’t Have To Live With Knee Pain Anymore
Knoxville Hospital & Clinics was the first and is the only facility in Iowa to offer robotics-assisted total knee replacement using the NAVIO system. We were also the first and remain the only facility in central Iowa where NAVIO robotic-assisted partial knee replacements are performed.
If you’re one of the estimated 30 million Americans suffering from osteoarthritis1, discover how total or partial knee replacement using NAVIO robotic assistance ensures your knee implant is positioned and aligned with precision. Proper positioning is crucial to joint function, comfort, and how long your implant may last.2,3

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