Total Knee Replacement

Total knee replacement surgery aims to replace the damaged knee joint with an artificial knee joint, allowing the patient to regain mobility and independence. Throughout this surgery, an artificial prosthesis is surgically implanted to take over the function of the disease knee joint. Indications of knee joint replacement surgery are severe pain with loss of function. It is an effective surgery with a reported 90% satisfaction rate lasting about 20 years.

Dr Chin Pak Lin is an orthopaedic surgeon specialising in knee replacement surgery using computer-aided and robotic-assisted techniques, including joint preservation techniques and major reconstruction. He frequently shares his experience in the region through courses and medical exchange programs.

Total Knee Replacement Surgery

Total knee replacement with robotic-assisted surgery uses modern technology to perform successful procedures. In the hands of an experienced surgeon, robotic surgery is a safe, effective way to obtain long-term pain relief and return to a pain-free lifestyle.

Apart from a higher degree of accuracy and increased precision, some other benefits of minimally invasive robotic knee surgery include:

Quicker Recovery& Minimal Scarring
More Natural FeelingAfter Recovery
Reduced Risks& Infections

Dr Chin’s medical philosophy is to provide a positive patient experience. As such, he is always on the lookout for newer and safer treatment methods for his patients.

Robotic surgery is one such treatment method, as he can augment his surgical skills with the benefits of computer-aided precision. With modern advances in both surgical and non-surgical treatments, patients benefit from more treatment options with quicker recovery times and reduced discomfort.

Similar to a GPS system, Robotic surgery requires a “driver” in the form of a surgeon. As such, the benefits of such methods are still largely dependent on the surgeon’s surgical skills.

With Robotic or Computer-Aided surgical techniques, the patients can lower their risks of complications and a quicker recovery rate.
