Discover The Benefits of Robotic-Assisted Surgery
A Longer Lasting Knee Joint
A More “Normal Feeling” Knee
3Patients who undergo partial knee replacement often report a ‘more normal’ feeling knee, less pain, and quicker rehabilitation.
4With a CORI robotics-assisted procedure using Smith+Nephew implants, you can keep more of your natural bone and ligaments, including the ACL. That means your body can maintain more of its natural rhythm and step.

Why Robotic-Assisted Surgery With The CORI System Can Achieve Better Outcomes Compared to Traditional Knee Replacement Surgery
Smaller surgical incision
More natural knee motion
Lower risk of complications
There is less cutting of tissue.
No Hospital Stay Required
Done as an outpatient surgery.
What is Robotic-Assisted Surgery?
During the procedure, the surgeon uses CORI Robotics to collect anatomical data. The computer builds a 3D model of the patient’s knee that helps the surgeon precisely place the implant and balance the knee’s ligaments for optimal alignment and function, what surgeons call “a well-balanced knee.”
All this data allows your surgeon to pre-plan your surgery and even “test fit” the implant to ensure optimal results, even before the surgery begins!
