OrthAlign technique has many advantages over conventional computer navigated surgery. Unlike conventional computer navigation, it does not need longer or extra incision to insert extra to pins in the thigh bone, needs lesser surgery time and leads to lesser blood loss.
Extra Pins in thigh and leg bones are needed and longer Incision used in Conventional Computer assisted surgery. These pain can cause more blood loss and fracture in the bone.
OrthAlign technique does not require insertion of these pins.
Orthalign technique is critical in performing knee replacement surgery in challenging conditions, like patient with previous fractures, with implants in thigh or leg bone and with bone deformities, as shown below.
