The short answer is: Most people with moderate to severe arthritis in their knee(s) who are suffering joint damage and pain as a result.
Arthritis is a common cause of knee pain. Damage to the cartilage (the cushioning between the bones) and degeneration of the bones cause the pain, which is the most common symptom of arthritis. Other symptoms of arthritis may include joint stiffness, swelling and “locking” or loss of joint mobility. Osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, and post-traumatic arthritis are the three most common forms of arthritis.
Regardless of what’s causing arthritis, patients who haven’t responded to conservative treatments such as physical therapy, bracing, medications, or supplementation of joint fluid are usually candidates for surgery, and most people qualifying for knee replacement surgery will generally benefit from a robotic assist.
