Bangalore (Karnataka) [India], February 14: Pixee Medical, a forefront innovator in medical technology, celebrates a groundbreaking achievement with the successful execution of the double Total Knee Replacement (TKR) surgery in Bangalore, Karnataka, utilizing cutting-edge Augmented Reality (AR) technology. Under the expertise of distinguished orthopedic surgeon Dr. Narayan Hulse, Director of Orthopaedics at Fortis Hospital, Pixee’s surgical team executed this groundbreaking procedure on the both knees of a 65-year-old patient, marking a monumental leap in advancing orthopedic care within the region.

The integration of AR technology in Total Knee Replacement surgery represents a paradigm shift, ushering in an era of precision and personalized patient care. Dr. Narayan Hulse emphasized the significance of this achievement, stating, “The successful execution of AR-assisted double Total Knee Replacement surgery signifies a transformative phase in orthopedic surgery, allowing us to deliver highly individualized interventions for optimal patient outcomes. This also heralds the future developments of new generations of techniques and instrumentations using augmented reality and artificial intelligence “

In a compelling case, 65-year-old women, endured severe knee pain for a decade, delaying total knee replacements due to surgery fears. Encouraged by a relative’s successful procedure by Dr. Hulse, she sought consultation. Dr. Hulse described her condition, “She was limping, unable to walk properly, with restricted knee movements and profound leg bowing. Total knee replacement (TKR) was the only viable treatment.”

For a lasting and effective knee replacement, achieving precise alignment is crucial. Pixee’s AR technique, a fine balance between bone correction and soft tissue adjustment, aims to restore natural knee alignment. Mrs. Vijay underwent simultaneous knee replacements using this technology, with the surgery taking about 2.5 hours. Remarkably, the patient recovered well, going home in just four days and resuming basic daily activities.

The success of Bangalore’s AR-assisted double Total Knee Replacement surgery emphasizes a commitment to pioneering advancements in orthopedic surgery and patient-centered care. This achievement signifies a transformative shift in surgical precision, marking a new chapter in orthopedic healthcare practices.

Advancements in AR-assisted Knee Replacement Surgery:

Real-time Visualization: Surgeons utilize special AR glasses for detailed real-time knee data during surgery, ensuring precise preparation of your bone and placement of new knee parts.

Tailored Surgical Planning: AR assists in creating a personalized surgical plan based on patient-specific knee data, enhancing the potential for a smoother recovery.

Guidance Throughout the Procedure: AR acts as a surgical GPS, providing step-by-step guidance for precise cuts, accurate placement of new parts, and maintaining proper knee balance.

Minimally Invasive Surgery: AR guides surgeons towards smaller incisions, resulting in less tissue damage, faster healing, and reduced pain.

Implant longevity: Precise placement of the components and adequate soft tissue balance not only helps to achieve greater function; it may also make your knee last longer. Long term studies are needed to ascertain these benefits in the future.
