Knoxville Hospital & Clinics was the first and remains the only medical facility in central/south central Iowa where NAVIO® robotics-assisted partial knee replacement surgeries are performed.
Have you considered knee replacement surgery, but have been putting it off for as long as possible? You’re not alone. Many people suffer with knee pain and reduced mobility for far too long. Delaying treatment can cause additional damage to your joint and reduce your surgical options.
Now there is a new minimally invasive surgical option – NAVIO robotics-assisted partial knee replacement. Partial knee replacement patients typically have a faster, less painful recovery than those who undergo a traditional total knee replacement. Many active people living with knee pain are finding partial knee replacement an appealing alternative.
Only an orthopedic surgeon can determine if partial knee replacement is the best plan for you. If you have persistent knee pain and stiffness, and your condition doesn’t respond to over-the-counter anti-inflammatory medication, you should be examined by a physician. The NAVIO robotics surgery program is led by Dr. Todd Peterson, the only surgeon in central Iowa certified to perform the advanced procedure. Schedule an appointment today with Dr. Todd Peterson at the Knoxville Hospital & Clinics by calling 641-842-1441.
In her own words
Cindy had partial knee replacement surgery performed in August 2017. She was up walking the same day of surgery, and home the next morning. She walked unassisted at home in two days, and was surprised how quickly she recovered and was back to work. Cindy suffered from knee pain for 17 years, she is now living pain free.
