The Holzer Orthopedics Team is now utilizing the Stryker Navigation System for total hip and knee replacement surgery. This system offers a technology option that will help facilitate a more accurate alignment and positioning of the implant, which is the most important prerequisite for the artificial hip and knee joint stability, durability and sufficient range of motion.
The Stryker Navigation system uses an infrared camera and instruments along with unique tracking software to continually monitor the position, angles and alignment of the implant in relation to the patient’s anatomy. Smart Active wireless instruments send data pertaining to the kinematics (movement) to the computer.
The computer analyzes and displays data on a computer monitor in the form of graphs that supply the surgeon with the angles, lines, and measurements needed to accurately align the prosthetic hip with the patient.
One benefit of the Stryker Navigation system is that it eliminates the need for pre-operative X-rays or CT scans. Experience shows that the system may lead to possible shorter hospital stays, fewer post-operative complications, and improved joint stability. The Stryker Navigation system also has applications in knee, trauma, spine, neurosurgery and ENT.
