Robotic NKR

The world’s most progressive and advanced technology for Knee Replacement. Power of robotic technology along with preservation of natural elements by Natural Knee Replacement will give a patient Powerful, Performing, Pain free, Personalized and Permanent knee.

What is Robotic NKR?


The human body is a unique entity and so is the human knee. The traditional knee replacement surgery reconstructs every person’s knee in a similar, ‘Pillar’ like structure or the perpendicular shape. However, statistically only 0.1% people naturally have a perpendicular shaped knee.

The Robotic Natural Knee Replacement Surgery (NKR) allows the surgeon to recraft an exact replica of your unique original young knee. The human hand faces a limitation of achieving a precision of up to 0.5mm & 0.5 degrees which this robotic technology eliminates. The Robotic NKR technology adds a distinctive touch which extends a pain-free, everlasting result.

Generally the population undergoing knee replacement surgeries are above their 60s. But the young patients suffering from knee problems, who also failed with conservative regimen, are not addressed. Robotic knee replacement technology is advantageous for younger patients too.

The traditional surgery requires the surgeon to cut the bone, whereas this unique robotic surgery enables us to preserve bone, ligament and muscle. Thus, this technology preserves the naturality of the knee, retaining strength and power of the muscles, ensuring stability and natural alignment. With each replacement customised to your individual structure this technology gives long lasting treatment results.

How does the pre-operative plan work with the Robotic knee replacement?

Robotic knee replacement is personalised knee replacement. Pre planning of the surgery, by experienced and skilled surgeon, allows performing surgery accurately. Surgeon will be able to plan the surgery according to unique anatomy of the patient. The surgeon uses this 3D model virtual to pre-plan your surgical procedure. The surgeon will know precisely where to prepare the bone for the implant, and the Robotic knee system guides the surgeon to stay within the pre-defined area. This helps to provide optimal placement and alignment of your implant.

How long does surgery take?

Worrying about surgical time is okay but worrying about its longevity is more important than the time of surgery.

What can I expect after surgery?

Robotic knee replacement will give you 5 strength of P; Pain free, Powerful, Performing, Personalised and Permanent knee. 

Will my implant set off a metal detector?

Implants are made up of Metal Alloys and high grade plastics. Thus it will activate certain security systems. We will provide you an implant card as a proof. 

How soon can I return to work?

A patient can have dinner with the family on the very next day of the surgery. Furthermore Rapid recovery protocol by trained physiotherapists from VIROC hospital will allow patient to return back to work within 15-20 days of the surgery.

What activities can I enjoy following knee replacement?

Low impact activities are advised after Robotic knee replacement. Walking, swimming, golfing, driving, light hiking, biking, dancing are also allowed.
