OrthoNY Launches Robotic Total Knee Replacement

As New York continues to reopen and elective surgeries resume, OrthoNY can offer patients a new option for total knee replacement, the first of its kind in the state. Zimmer Biomet’s ROSA® Knee System is now available at both OrthoNY Surgical Suites in Clifton Park and Albany’s new Everett Road Surgery Center.

ROSA® Knee System now in Clifton Park and Albany

The ROSA® Knee is a robotically-assisted surgical system designed to help perform total replacement of the joint. Combining robotic technology with industry-leading knee implants, the system allows surgeons to personalize procedures for their patients. It includes features to aid with bone resections, and assess the state of soft tissues for optimal implant positioning while operating. Data provided by ROSA® Knee assists with complex decision-making and enables physicians to use computer and software technology to control and move surgical instruments for greater precision and flexibility.

One of the most commonly performed elective surgeries, total joint replacement has become increasingly more popular as an outpatient procedure. OrthoNY physicians started introducing the option to eligible patients within the past year. ROSA® Knee will enhance the possibilities for same-day total joint replacement, getting patients home and on the road to recovery faster.

“We understand joint replacement can be a difficult decision for patients,” remarked Dr. Frederick Fletcher, an OrthoNY surgeon specializing in care of the hip and knee. “The distinct advantages of robotically-assisted technology – a more precise, more comfortable implant fit – have the potential to make that decision easier and improve our patients’ experience.”

Dr. William O’Connor, another of OrthoNY’s knee surgeons, added, “Our goal is always to provide the highest quality care through the best treatment options available. We are excited to continue Saving Lifestyles by offering our patients outpatient knee replacement with ROSA®.”
