Capital Ortho's surgical team performed Mississippi's first successful robot-assisted partial knee replacement at a freestanding surgical facility, according to local ABC News affiliate WJTV.com.

The procedure was done at Capital Ortho's surgery center using the Navio Surgical System, which helps with precision and accuracy. The robot provides intraoperative registration, planning and navigation.

Navio also helps surgeons build personalized surgical plans without the need for a preoperative computed tomography scan.

Capital Ortho is based in Flowood, Miss.
