John Velyvis MD Surpasses 550 Robotic Assisted Partial Knee Resurfacing Procedures
Date:3/12/2013

SAN FRANCISCO, March 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Sometimes medical advances come by degree: sometimes medicine leapfrogs into a new approach that dramatically advances patient treatment. Dr. John Velyvis , MD, Board Certified Orthopedic Surgeon, specialist in minimally invasive knee and hip surgery, is Director of the Robotic Knee Center at St Francis Memorial Hospital in San Francisco. He is Fellowship Trained from the Massachusetts General Hospital at Harvard University Medical School. Dr. Velyvis obtained his medical doctorate at Columbia University, New York and graduated from Harvard University with a degree in Biomedical Engineering.

Dr. Velyvis says that from his first contact with Robotic Knee Preservation and Restoration, he knew the days of radical total knee replacement being used as the go-to surgery for arthritic knee pain were numbered. As an example Dr. Velyvis has logged some 624 partial knee resurfacing procedures but some 560 of them were performed using robotics.

Robotic Assisted Partial Knee Resurfacing is a growing discipline in the treatment of arthritic knee joints and Dr. Velyvis has emerged as one of the leaders in the field. At one point, the doctor had performed 12% of such robotic assisted surgeries in the United States, performed using the MAKOplasty procedure. Explained Dr. Velyvis, "From a surgical perspective, we do everything we can to perform to exacting tolerances. Once the surgeon sees the level of sophistication the robot provides, there is simply no way to go back to unassisted resurfacing. The robotic surgeries are simply better outcomes."

But Dr. Velyvis says while total knee replacement has its place in more advanced cases, "Two critical ligaments are surgically severed. These are the very ligaments that guide motion and stability to the joint. The ends of the tibia a
