You Don’t Have To Live With Knee Pain Anymore
The physicians at Shasta Regional Medical Center use the latest robotics-assisted technology — the NAVIO Surgical System — to perform robotics-assisted partial knee replacement.
If you’re one of the estimated 30 million Americans suffering from osteoarthritis, discover how partial knee replacement using robotic assistance delivers accurate and precise results that can help you return to the activities you love

How do I know if I am a candidate for robotics-assisted partial knee replacement using the NAVIO system?
Although the best treatment for each patient must be determined individually, typical candidates share the following characteristics:
- Knee pain on the inner knee during activity
- Start-up knee pain or stiffness caused by activities initiated from a seated position
- Knee pain is limiting activity on more days than not
- No longer finding relief through non-surgical treatment options
The NAVIO system is not for everyone. Children, pregnant women, patients who have mental or neuromuscular disorders that do not allow control of the knee joint and morbidly obese patients should not undergo a NAVIO procedure. Knee replacement surgery is intended to relieve knee pain and improve knee functions. However, implants may not produce the same feel or function as your original knee. There are potential risks with knee replacement surgery such as loosening, fracture, dislocation, wear and infection that may result in the need for additional surgery. Longevity of implants depends on many factors, such as types of activities and weight.

Consult your physician for details to determine if a NAVIO robotics assisted procedure is right for you. The NAVIO system is intended to assist the surgeon in providing software-defined spatial boundaries for orientation and reference information to anatomical structures during orthopedic procedures. The NAVIO system is indicated for use in surgical knee procedures, in which the use of stereotactic surgery may be appropriate, and where reference to rigid anatomical bony structures can be determined. These procedures include unicondylar knee replacement (UKR), patellofemoral arthroplasty (PFA), and total knee arthroplasty (TKA). The NAVIO system is indicated for use with cemented implants only.
