Discover The Benefits of Robotic-Assisted Surgery

Faster Recovery

1A CORI robotics-assisted knee replacement with Smith+Nephew implants may get you back in the game six months sooner than traditional knee replacement surgery.

A Longer Lasting Knee Joint

2CORI robotics-assisted technology helps your surgeon position your knee implant more accurately for better overall alignment. This can help avoid uneven wear on your implant and can result in a longer-lasting knee. (uni)

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

R

Better Accuracy

The use of robotics provides better accuracy in bone preparation and implant positioning. This is important because misalignment is often a primary factor with implant failure.
R

Better Planning

The robotic and computer technology allows your doctor to pre-plan your surgery with precision. This can be a significant factor in optimum outcomes.
R

Faster Recovery

Many patients are able to walk and climb stairs the same day of surgery and leave within 24 hours.
R

Smaller surgical incision

R

More natural knee motion

R

Lower risk of complications

R

Less Pain

There is less cutting of tissue.

R

No Hospital Stay Required

Done as an outpatient surgery.

What is Robotic-Assisted Surgery?

CORI Robotics-Assisted Surgery enhances the way orthopedic surgeons can perform full and partial knee replacements. Using state-of-the-art, robotics-assisted technology, the CORI system works with the surgeon’s skill and expertise to achieve precise positioning of the knee implant for consistently accurate results.

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!
