Over the last decade, new surgical tools, including computer navigation and robotic surgery, have gained access to the operating room. For a lot of procedures these high precision tools are not required for experiences surgeons. However, Dr. Boettner utilizes both procedures if indicated. He has gained experience with computer navigation for primary total hip replacement as well as total knee replacement and currently uses robotic surgery for almost all of his partial knee replacements. Computer-assisted surgery is not a guarantee of a perfect surgery and often patients have the feeling that the computer will ultimately make things better. Our philosophy is that the combination of an experienced surgeon, with the guidance of a computer, can improve your outcome and that is why we implement thistechnology. Especially in partial knee replacements, they allow us to better simulate how the new artificial joint will function in your body and that will ensure good outcome of your surgery.
