Minimally Invasive Surgery for Orthopedics
Having orthopedic surgery used to mean spending several days in a hospital and weeks in recovery. Today, many procedures are done using minimally invasive techniques. This type of treatment may lead to faster healing and less scarring.*
Using advanced technology, orthopedic surgeons make small pencil-sized holes in the body. Video equipment is used to provide a magnified view of the surgical site. Tiny instruments are used to perform the surgery through the incisions. However, the surgeon is always in total control.
Robotic-Assisted Joint Replacement Surgery - CORI® Surgical System
The CORI® Surgical System offers robotic-assisted joint replacement for partial and total knee replacements. CORI robotic-assisted surgery may be an option for patients with:
- Knee pain diagnosed as severe arthritis
- Knee pain or stiffness that limits your daily activities such as walking, climbing stairs, or getting in and out of chairs
- Knee pain while at rest
- Knee deformity or leg deformity (bowing or “knocked knee")
- Knee pain despite non-surgical treatment
Benefits of CORI Robotic-assisted Knee Replacement
The system uses 3D-digital modeling to get a surgical plan customized to the patients’ unique anatomy. This means orthopedic surgeons can perform the procedure more accurately than with traditional knee replacement surgery. These surgeries allow patients to keep more of their natural bone and ligaments, including the ACL.
Patients may enjoy many benefits from the smaller incisions used by the CORI system. They may have less blood loss, shorter hospital stays and quicker recoveries. Patients may return to daily life sooner. They may also maintain more natural movement.*
Surgery with the CORI system does not require a CT scan, so patients are not exposed to unnecessary radiation.
