Orthopedic surgeons and the medical staff at the Orthopedic & Sports Institute (OSI) are excited to offer Zimmer Biomet’s ROSA® Knee System, which brings together robotic technology with industry-leading knee implants to help surgeons personalize surgical procedures for their patients.
ROSA® Knee is a robotically-assisted surgical system designed to help perform total knee replacement surgery. It includes features to assist with bone resections and assessing the state of soft tissues in order to facilitate implant positioning intraoperatively. Data provided by ROSA® Knee assists with complex decision-making and enables surgeons to use computer and software technology to control and move surgical instruments, allowing for greater precision and flexibility during procedures.
According to the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, total joint replacement is one of the most commonly performed elective surgical procedures in the United States. It is also becoming an increasingly popular outpatient procedure at surgery centers across the country, including the Orthopedic & Sports Institute in Appleton, Wis., which will debut the ROSA® Knee System this summer.
“For everyone involved – surgeons, medical staff and, most importantly, patients – ROSA® Knee has the potential to offer a number of key benefits and advantages,” OSI’s Dr. David Kuplic said. “We know the decision to have joint replacement is often a difficult one for patients to make, and we believe these robotically-assisted technologies have the potential to make it an easier one moving forward.”
