New York ASC adds robotic knee replacements

Oswego Health's Center for Orthopedic Care outpatient surgical center in Fulton, N.Y., has added robotic knee replacements to its surgical repertoire, according to local news source NNY360.

The Navio Surgical System will be unveiled at an event Nov. 5 at SUNY Oswego's Shineman Center in Oswego, N.Y. The Navio robot is the only robotic system for knee surgery that doesn't require the patient to undergo a preoperative CT scan. Instead, the surgeon uses 3D images and the handheld robotic system to perform the procedure.

“Not only are we achieving a greater level of accuracy with the use of robotically assisted systems … our patients receive cutting-edge care with shortened recovery times. Our goal is to provide robotically assisted total knee on an outpatient basis,” Michael Diaz, DO, told NNY360. Dr. Diaz will demonstrate the system at the event.
