VELYS(TM) Robotic-Assisted Solution

VELYS(TM) Robotic-Assisted Solution

A knee replacement is a procedure performed to repair the damaged parts of a knee using various types of implants. Advanced technology, such as robotic-assisted devices, can assist your surgeon in performing precise knee replacement surgery tailored to your specific anatomy.

Every knee and every patient requiring a knee replacement procedure is unique. The VELYS™ Robotic-Assisted Solution aids your surgeon in optimizing surgical outcomes by utilizing intraoperative data unique to you. Your surgeon employs this technology during the procedure to enhance the accuracy and precision of your knee replacement, facilitating your recovery and mobility.


How does the VELYS™ Robotic-Assisted Solution work?

The VELYS™ Robotic-Assisted Solution incorporates a variety of advanced technologies to ensure the surgeon has the information and tools necessary to perform highly accurate and precise knee replacements.

This solution is designed to:

  • Assist your surgeon in accessing state-of-the-art technology for real-time decision-making insights.
  • Aid your surgeon in accurately removing damaged bone; this robotic-assisted device does not move or operate independently.
  • Utilize an infrared camera and optical trackers to help your surgeon gather essential data about your anatomy, ensuring a high level of precision.

The VELYS™ Robotic-Assisted Solution is exclusively compatible with the ATTUNE® Knee System. The ATTUNE Knee System, utilized by over 1 million patients worldwide, is engineered to provide a greater range of motion and faster recovery, enabling individuals to return to their desired lifestyle.

How is robotic-assisted technology different?

Robotic-assisted knee replacement:

  • Technology controlled by the surgeon
  • May experience less pain and a faster recovery
  • More consistent outcomes (inconsistencies can affect recovery)

Traditional knee replacement:

  • Hand-held tool
  • May experience a longer recovery time
  • There may be more variability in the surgical processes and outcomes

What are the benefits of using robotic-assisted technology?

There are several potential benefits to using this technology for your knee replacement.* Throughout your procedure, the technology gathers details and data about your knee, aiding in finding an optimal implant fit. Moreover, robotic-assisted technology may enable your surgeon to customize a knee replacement specifically for you, ensuring precision and accuracy during the procedure.

Robotic-assisted technology may provide*:

  • A greater range of motion (improved flexibility and bending of the knee after surgery)
  • Reduced pain compared to traditional methods
  • Faster recovery times (resulting in shorter hospital stays, fewer readmissions, and medical visits)

*Findings are based on studies conducted across various robotic-assisted total knee replacement systems.

What should you discuss with your surgeon ahead of surgery?

  1. What type of knee replacement do you think is appropriate for my situation?
  2. What other knee replacement techniques and technologies are available, and how do they compare to the VELYS™ Robotic-Assisted Solution?
  3. Can knee replacement surgery help alleviate my pain and stiffness?
  4. What are the benefits and risks associated with knee replacement surgery?
  5. How long will recovery and rehabilitation take after knee replacement with the VELYS™ Robotic-Assisted Solution? What role do I play in the recovery and rehabilitation process?
  6. If I opt for technology-assisted knee replacement surgery, will I be able to resume daily activities?
