Playing Meet 39-Year-Old Marathon Runner Who Underwent Double Robotic Knee Surgery

Robots are taking over the operating room --- but for a good reason and it could mean less painful surgeries.

Plastic surgeon Dr. Andrew Ordon, who had surgery on both of his knees -- 1 of the procedures was a robotic knee surgery -- and he calls this new technology "an amazing medical advancement." He feels his robotic knee surgery resulted in a quicker recovery and less pain.

We are joined by orthopedic surgeon Dr. Denis Nam and double knee replacement patient Sarah to discuss the wonders of using robots to operate on people.

At 39, Sarah -- who is a marathon runner -- was shocked when doctors told her she would need double knee replacements. Dr. Nam says the fastest growing demographic of patients needing a joint replacement are those under the age of 50. He explains Sarah has arthritis in both her knees and therapies and injections had not been successful.

Sarah has had a remarkable recovery after her knee surgeries and tells us her motto is "New knees, new me," and is playing sports again and looking forward to skiing again soon.

Dr. Nam explains a traditional knee replacement surgery is around 65 to 70 percent accurate, but using the robotic technology is far more precise and usually has around a 95 percent accuracy rate. He notes the technology limits the amount of damage done to your soft tissue, which is believed to be connected to a quicker recovery.
