NAVIO: Robot-Assisted System for Knee Arthroplasty

It is one of the most modern and innovative robot-assisted orthopedic surgery systems approved by the NCBI (National Center for Biotechnology Information, USA), which enables the performance of high-precision arthroplasties. It reduces both the incision length and soft tissue disruption (Minimally Invasive Surgery-compatible), allowing for a short hospital stay, rapid mobilization as well as minimal pain and blood loss (1-3 days length-of-stay, Fast Track Surgery).

NAVIO Surgical Systems have been in use since 2014 in the United States of America, France, Italy, and the United Kingdom. Greece was the 4th European nation to purchase this system, and Metropolitan General will serve as a Training Hub for 22 countries in the SE Mediterranean and the Balkans.

The following advantages make NAVIO one of the most cutting-edge robot-assisted systems available:

  • Less patient exposure to radiation, as no preoperative CT-scan is needed
  • High resolution and detailed reporting on the tension of knee ligaments during the procedure
  • Procedure simulation before the initiation of surgical manipulations
  • Ability to apply 6 different types of knee arthroplasty, based on the age and activity level of each patient
