Navio® Surgical System
Handheld and In Control
The Navio surgical system features proprietary robotic-assisted technology that integrates handheld intelligent instruments with an intuitive CT-free registration and patient-specific planning process. The Navio unicondylar and patellofemoral knee replacement software applications guide the surgeon in creating implant plans that localize components and balance soft-tissue. The technology translates that information into a virtual surgical plan that removes the need for standard mechanical cutting guides and jigs. The handheld instrumentation uses multiple control modes to help the surgeon very precisely prepare the bone for implantation.
Key Features and Benefits
Produces precise, repeatable results for partial knee replacement.
Intraoperative mapping of anatomy creates a virtual 3D model providing visualization during surgery.
Powerful soft tissue balancing for post-op collateral ligament tension and implant alignment unique to each patient.
OR-friendly design and streamlined pre-operative set up integrates easily into existing ORs.
Open Implant Platform
With Navio, you’re free to use our STRIDE™ Unicondylar Knee System or any of our other partner implants.

“The Navio enables me to create a unique surgical plan and balance my patient’s knee virtually without the requirement of a pre-operative CT scan. With an established plan, the robotic handpiece assists me to precisely resurface the joint for bone preparation and plan achievement.”
Raul Marquez, MD
“Robotic assistance is now being used in over 15% of unicompartmental knee arthroplasties in the US, and those numbers are expected to grow globally, as data continues to emerge showing improved alignment and soft tissue balance with this technology. The Navio system is a natural evolution in robotics that dovetails with the trend toward outpatient surgery, particularly due to its highly affordable platform without the need for preop CT scans.”
Jess H. Lonner, MD

*Carefully consider the risks and benefits of any surgical procedure. Certain patients should avoid a Navio procedure, including children, pregnant women, patients who have mental or neuromuscular disorders that do not allow control of the knee joint, and morbidly obese patients. Consult with your physician for more information and to determine if Navio surgery is right for you. Be sure to ask any questions that you have and that all of your questions are answered. No surgery results can ever be guaranteed, so it is important that you understand the risks as well as the benefits of any procedure.
