The first sensor-assisted knee surgery performed at Holy Cross.
This week our orthopedic surgeons performed the first sensor-assisted knee surgery utilizing robotics and advanced sensors
Holy Cross Hospital and the Orthopedic Institute are committed to bringing the most advanced technology to our patients to improve surgical outcomes. This week our orthopedic surgeons performed the first sensor-assisted knee surgery utilizing robotics and advanced sensors to assist the surgeon in obtaining improved outcomes in knee replacement surgery.
The use of embedded nanosensors during minimally invasive surgery, coupled with robotic technology allows the surgeon to customize the surgery for each individual patient’s knee condition. According to Dr. Martin Roche, the most advanced intelligent knee surgery now incorporates computer-assisted alignment, customized robotic implant positioning, and optimized sensor-assisted, soft tissue balancing. This improves patient recovery and overall implant function for our patients.
Holy Cross Hospital supports the development of advanced technology for our orthopedic patients, working closely with OrthoSensor Inc. and MAKO Surgical Inc., two local South Florida device companies. Holy Cross performs the most joint replacement surgeries in South Florida and is ranked in the top two orthopedic centers in Florida according to U.S. News and World Report.
