Despite a resurgence in unicompartmental knee arthroplasty, issues such as early failure of the femoral and tibial components remain. Recently developed robotic systems have the potential to improve outcomes. Potential advantages of an arthroscopic approach to robotic unicompartmental arthroplasty include minimal anatomic disruption, continuous irrigation to eliminate thermogenic injury, and the potential to address coexisting intra-articular pathology.
