Introduction: Robotic surgery is one of the recent advance in total knee replacement. It aims for accuracy and precision in execution of surgery. This case report shows a patient with osteoarthritis knee with old implants around knee managed with robotic assisted knee surgery to achieve best possible outcome without removal of previous implant.
Case Report: We present a case of 70 years old male patient with history of right knee pain, severe deformity and past history of surgery for right femur and tibia fracture 30 years back with previous implants in situ. After investigation and pre-operative planning we did single stage knee replacement surgery using robotic assistance, all deformities corrected and achieved well balanced knee without removal of previous implant and just using primary knee replacement prosthesis.
Conclusion: Robotic knee replacement surgery definitely makes surgeons task easy and more précised not only to address difficult cases but also allows to manage severe deformities without using revision implants.

Keywords: Robotic knee replacement, Osteoarthritis, Total knee replacement, Deformity correction, Implant around knee.
