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.

Surgeon Testimonials


Dr Marquez

“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

Dr. Lonner

“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
