A compound word "ROBODOC" is
formed from the words "Robot" and "Doctor". This name has
been created to stand for a robot doctor, which provides the most advanced
medical technologies and services. ROBODOC performs orthopedic surgeries such
as Total Knee Arthroplasty and Total Hip Arthroplasty. ROBODOC System has been
composed with ORTHODOC, a pro-surgical planning workstation, and ROBODOC, which
provides the precise preparation of the bone with its robot arm.
of the Robot surgery
Examination of the affected joint through a CT scan
After deciding to undergo ROBODOC surgery,
the doctor carries out a CT scan of the hip, knee and ankle joints to determine
the mechanical axis of the limb, and to build a three-dimensional model of the
affected area where ‘virtual surgery’ is designed.
The 3D model is subsequently scrutinized by
the doctors to facilitate the proper planning and execution of the surgery.
Since the final plan is exclusively for one patient, an artificial joint is
created for the benefit of the same patient. Said artificial joint is patterned
to the natural joint through milling and cutting by the robot; thus, matches
the right shape and minimizing bone loss. Stating otherwise, a virtual surgery
is also carried out to ensure the successful outcome of the actual surgery.
The robot executes the doctor’s order according to the pre-planning
During the actual surgery, ROBODOC works
according to the doctor’s design to ensure high levels of precision in the
cutting of the bone. The bone is milled to the accuracy of sub millimeter which
cannot be done by human beings. The high technology mechanism adopted by
ROBODOC has a stable surgery results thereby eliminating human error.
The surgery plan is exclusively for ONE patient
Just as every individual have
different facial features, each and everyone has a unique bone structures.
Using a 3D model, the doctor drafts a surgery plan solely for the specific
Accuracy of artificial joint
There is an extensive preparation in
selecting and the insertion of an artificial joint to the specific
patient. The doctor uses the ROBODOC to
create new joints that exactly matches the damaged or worn out human joints and
inserts it accurately to the human body.
Approved by the US FDA, confirmed by Korea Regulation.
Surgery is the artificial joint replacement using high tech robotic equipment
which is approved in accordance to Korea’s safety standards in medical
Minimize the probability of a revision surgery
surgery is a specific operation to each patient. Through accurate planning to
achieve ideal surgery results, the life of the artificial joint is lengthened
with minimal risks and complications.
Precise bone cutting
ROBODOC surgery uses an accurate
planning and has the precise cutting mechanism ability to minimize unnecessary
bone loss and human error.
ROBODOC surgery has better results
than manual surgery. It prevents the imbalanced length to legs,
thromboembolism, and fractures. More so, with ROBODOC surgery there are lesser
tools used than in a manual surgery which can lead to exposure with different
between ROBODOC surgery and Traditional(General or Manual) surgery
In the case of traditional surgery, surgeon
determines the type, size, and location of prosthesis based on 2D radiographs,
and performs the surgery according to the experience.
However, in the case of ROBODOC surgery,
ORTHODOC converts the CT scan of the patients joint into a 3D bone image, which
allows surgeons to establish a precise preoperational planning. This enables
surgeon to perform a virtual surgery based on the patient CT data, Using
controlled, gentle pressure the ROBODOC can mill the bone with sub-millimeter
accuracy as specified by the preoperative plan.
The length of hospitalization depends on
the condition of the patients, but usually, the post-operative hospitalization
period is shorter in ROBODOC surgery (e.g. L Hospital in Korea; average
hospitalization period is 5 to 7 days only.)
