Abstract

In successful knee arthroplasty, the femur and the tibia must be shaped to fit an artificial joint. The recent trend towards MIS (Minimally Invasive Surgery) to decrease the length of the required incision in the skin has increased surgical difficulty, since the open access area is small. The developed system consists of (1) a preplanning system providing a CAD function, (2) a multi-axis CAM system which avoids cutting the skin and the ligament, and keeps the cutting time within acceptable limits, and (3) a 7-axis machine tool that assures the safety of the patient and the surgeon, and enables MIS.
