BOA Virtual Congress 2020 - How can Digitalisation Help us in TKA? (Depuy Synthes)

Digital Technology is gaining more and more relevance in our daily lives. In TKA surgery it offers the option to increase quality and efficiency. The problems of conventional surgery can be minimised by demonstrating all data on deformities, cutting planes and amounts of bone cuts in real time. Modern alignment approaches can be introduced with high precision. This data can help to understand OA knees better and find more individual solutions for the patients in the future. The second part of the talk will focus on workflow standardisation, its development process and benefits. Standardisation tries to repeat an optimized workflow in every surgery. Due to that average quality (less complications) and surgical time is improved.
