What is VELYS Robotic-Assisted Solution for Knee Replacement?
VELYS Robotic-Assisted Solution for knee replacement is a novel, state-of-the-art knee system that simplifies total knee arthroplasty, commonly known as total knee replacement surgery, by offering valuable insights, versatile execution, and verified performance to provide efficiency for surgeons and optimize patient outcomes.
There is a growing trend to utilize robotic assistance for joint replacement procedures for increased precision and accuracy. However, the effect of robotic technology on surgical efficiency, including operative time and the technological learning curve, has been described as a drawback.
The VELYS Robotic-Assisted Solution has been developed to respond to this drawback as a first-of-its-kind surgical table-mounted solution that adapts to the surgeon’s workflow and utilizes advanced planning abilities, proprietary technology, and a next-generation design to assist surgeons to precisely cut bones that align and position the implant in relation to the soft-tissue during total knee arthroplasty without requiring pre-operative imaging. The compact and efficient design integrates into any operating room with its much smaller design that is less than half the size of some other robotic-assisted system.
The VELYS™ Robotic-Assisted Solution works exclusively with the ATTUNE Knee System, which studies have reported can improve patient-reported outcomes, clinical outcomes, as well as contribute to a shorter hospital stay. Supporting the “patient-specific alignment” operative method, VELYS Robotic-Assisted Solution has also been designed to help surgeons in offering a knee alignment that is tailored to each individual’s specific knee anatomy. Together with the ATTUNE® Knee System, VELYS™ Robotic-Assisted System provides solutions to help personalize the knee replacement process with surgical planning, surgical implementation, preoperative patient engagement, and post-operative support.
Key Features of VELYS Robotic-Assisted Solution for Knee Replacement
The VELYS Robotic-Assisted Solution makes knee arthroplasty surgery much simpler by providing:
- Valuable Insights: Gap balance data to assist surgeons to visualize and predict the stability of the joint
- Versatile Execution: Instinctive and integrated design to provide surgeons with the control they are used to while optimizing daily patient OR flow
- Verified Performance: Consistent and accurate plan execution supporting the ATTUNE Knee in offering superior patient outcomes
Indications for VELYS Robotic-Assisted Solution for Knee Replacement
The VELYS™ Robotic-Assisted Solution is indicated for use with the ATTUNE® Knee System for total knee arthroplasty. Total knee replacement, also called total knee arthroplasty, is a surgical procedure in which the worn out or damaged surfaces of the knee joint are removed and replaced with an artificial prosthesis.
Your surgeon may recommend VELYS™ Robotic-Assisted Solution for knee replacement if you have one or more of the following conditions:
- Chronic progressive joint diseases, such as osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis
- Severe trauma/fracture to the knee joint
- Increased pain in the affected knee
- Knee instability or a feeling of giving way while walking
- Stiffness in the knee
- Non-surgical treatment options have failed to relieve your symptoms
