The NAVIO® surgical system is an innovative approach to all forms of knee replacement surgery. The London Clinic is one of the only hospitals in the UK to offer this surgical system which uses robotic technology to offer support to complement the skill of our orthopaedic surgeons.

The system ensures increased precision and accuracy combined which often leads to faster recovery times. All patients are supported before and after surgery by our expert physiotherapy team, using The London Clinic’s exclusive patient pathway that includes rehabilitation in our hydrotherapy pool and using our AlterG anti-gravity treadmill.

In a healthy knee, the cartilage lining the b­­ones helps them glide over each other as you move. Arthritis and injury can damage or wear away this cartilage, making movement painful and difficult. If painkillers, exercise and physiotherapy don’t help to ease the pain, a partial or total surgical replacement of the knee joint may be necessary.

The NAVIO® Surgical System is designed to help the surgeon with the accurate placement of the knee implant, balancing of ligaments and preparing of bones.

These are key factors in helping a knee replacement survive and succeed. Patients who have been treated using this system have been able to resume driving and return to work and hobbies more quickly [1].

Understanding your treatment

Knee pain can be debilitating both physically and emotionally. Mr Dinesh Nathwani, Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon at The London Clinic, will discuss your individual care with you, treatment options, and will be able to answer any questions you have in detail.

Professor Ali Ghoz, Mr Sujith Konan, and Mr Arjuna Imbuldeniya are also consultants that can provide expert advice about surgical and non-surgical care.

Many people are concerned that the operation may increase pain or further decrease mobility. However, knee replacement is one of the most commonly carried out orthopaedic surgeries and success rates are excellent. Nine out of ten people have immediate relief from pain and around 95% of people are satisfied following the procedure.

Treatment facts

All patients are supported in recovery by our expert physiotherapy team so we expect that most patients will be discharged within 1 - 2 days of knee replacement surgery. You should then have consultant follow-up after six weeks.

Controlled mobilisation and exercise are an important part of the recovery process and our expert teams will advise you about safe rehabilitation. Your knee will continue to improve for up to two years and your new joint should be expected to last at least 20 years [2].
