Advanced surgical technology
Ballad Health is utilizing leading robotics technology for surgical procedures to give you faster recovery times, minimal scarring and shorter hospital stays.
For orthopedic procedures, your surgeon might use a robotic-arm system. This technology allows for higher precision and is used for total knee, partial knee and total hip replacements.
If you're scheduling a minimally invasive procedure, your doctor may recommend robotic-assisted surgery. This service lowers the rates of complications and infections during your surgery, while also providing virtually scarless results and minimal surgical pain.
Many of these robotic-assisted procedures are same-day surgeries, so you can get back to your regular life quicker with an easier recovery. At Ballad Health, you can get a total knee replacement and be home in the same day!
