Campbell Clinic First in Memphis to Use ROSA® Robot Knee System on Outpatient Surgeries
Campbell Clinic has recently procured the Zimmer-Biomet’s ROSA® Robot Knee System. ROSA®, which stands for Robotic Surgical Assistant, will assist Campbell Clinic surgeons in performing accurate and individualized knee replacements. Campbell Clinic is among the first in the region and the very first in the Mid-South to use this robot-assisted technology on outpatient total knee replacement.
The Zimmer-Biomet’s ROSA® Robot Knee System supports surgeons in performing total knee arthroplasty (TKA) with features to assist with bone resections, as well as assessing the state of the patient's soft tissue to facilitate implant positioning intraoperatively. The ROSA® robot incorporates dynamic tracking and real-time data of each patient's anatomy to help surgeons achieve personalized care and optimal patient outcomes.
"The robot is a tool that assists in surgery to help with accurate placement of joint implants," says Dr. Patrick Toy, total joint replacement surgeon at Campbell Clinic. "Proper placement of joint implants is imperative for patients to have the greatest chance of success. When combined with our orthopaedic expertise, this new robotic technique delivers the most comprehensive treatment available for those in need of knee replacements. In short, robots could be the key to longevity and painless function in knee replacement."
ROSA® is designed to help surgeons tailor the placement of each patient's unique knee implant. A precise fit is critical to the comfort and overall recovery of patients following knee replacements. ROSA® uses real time data about each individuals knee during surgery to let the surgeon know details related to each patient's anatomy that may affect his/her implant. By using this data to make more informed decisions, Campbell Clinic surgeons are able to plan for and carry out personalized surgeries based on individual needs.
Dr. Frederick Azar, Campbell Clinic Chief of Staff notes, “Adding the ROSA® robot to our team is just one of the many investments we are pleased to make, furthering our commitment to continue to be an industry leader in orthopaedic and sports medicine.”
