New Robotics-Assisted Knee Replacements
What is a robotics-assisted knee replacement?
The use of the CORI robotics-assisted system advances the way orthopedic surgeons perform partial and total knee replacement surgeries. Every CORI procedure has an individualized plan based on each patient’s unique anatomy. Computer assistance is used to collect the unique shape and motion of your knee to virtually plan the procedure, and robotic assistance is used to accurately perform the procedure. The CORI System does not perform the procedure; rather it assists your surgeon by providing accuracy and precision which is critical to the success of the surgery. This level of accuracy can help improve the function, feel and potential longevity of the knee implant.
What does this mean for you?
- CT-free system, which equals less radiation
- Minimally invasive surgical techniques
- Less operating room time, and less time under anesthesia
