OG exemplary drawing
 
1. A robotic system for use in performing an arthroplasty procedure of a patient, the robotic system comprising:
a robotic mechanism, wherein the robotic mechanism is configured to perform the arthroplasty procedure without being coupled to an operating table;
a cutting tool coupled to the robotic mechanism for resecting a portion of a bone of the patient through an incision in the skin of the patient, the robotic mechanism configured to control movement of the cutting tool during the resection;
a computer coupled to the robotic mechanism and configured to control the robotic mechanism;
at least one navigation member positionable into engagement with tissue in the patient;
an optical system coupled to the computer, the optical system configured to determine the location of at least one bone relative to other tissue in the patient, wherein the optical system is configured to provide location information of the at least one bone to the computer for used by the robotic mechanism;
a position sensor configured to provide movement information of the robotic mechanism relative to the bone; and
an interface coupled to the computer, the interface configured to operate the computer.
