VELYS robotic-assisted surgery solution optimizes patient outcomes
The VELYS robotic-assisted solution is the latest addition to the suite of advanced technology options offered through our orthopedic care program. Designed to assist Gritman’s experienced teams in each and every step of a total knee replacement surgery, its versatile execution increases precision to accelerate recovery and get you back to living your life with less pain and more mobility.
With valuable insights and verified performance, the device is a welcome addition to the surgery care teams with Gritman Orthopedic Surgeons and Inland Orthopaedic Surgery. Surgeons from both practices utilize the device for total knee arthroplasty procedures in our Gritman Medical Center operating room. Its precise personalization improves accuracy, simplifies the procedure, speeds up post-operation recovery and has been shown to reduce the overall cost of care.
Advanced technology like robotics can help the surgeon perform a knee replacement surgery personalized for your specific situation.
The VELYS robotic-assisted solution is designed for digital precision in knee replacement, using data specific to each patient case while keeping the surgeon in control of your knee replacement.
“As a 30-year- experienced total joint surgeon, I have a very specific way that I like to build total knees,” Gritman Orthopedic Surgeon Dr. Marvin Kym said. “The VELYS allows me to be in control and apply what I’ve learned over the years with data feedback to confirm that what I’m seeing with my eyes and feeling with my hands is reproduced with numbers that I can trust.”
The device includes an infrared camera and optical trackers to help the surgeon achieve a high degree of accuracy.
Dr. Mathew Taylor with Inland Orthopaedic Surgery and Sports Medicine in Moscow, also praises the device. The orthopedic surgeon uses the system regularly when performing knee replacement surgeries at Gritman.
“I love using the VELYS robotic knee and hip navigation system,” he said. “We did a really good total knee and hip before, but now we are even more precise and that much better.”
The end results include shorter hospital stays, improved outcome, increased mobility and accelerated recovery.
