Free Seminar on Knee Replacement Surgery

6 p.m. Monday, January 29
West Tennessee Bone & Joint Institute
219 Stonebridge Blvd., Jackson, TN

Speaker: R. Michael Cobb, M.D.

Learn about robotics-assisted knee replacement surgery that works with the skilled hands of your surgeon to create a custom surgical plan for your knee and is designed to improve surgical outcomes. This breakthrough technology for total and partial knee replacement uses robotic assistance to achieve enhanced accuracy when compared to traditional knee surgery. (1,2)

More Information

The new CORI surgical platform—now available for both unicompartmental knee arthroplasty and total knee arthroplasty—is small and portable, making it ideal for ambulatory surgery centers (ASCs) and outpatient surgery. CORI includes new camera technology which is over four times faster, offers more efficient cutting technology with twice the cutting volume, and aims to result in a faster robotic surgical procedure compared to the NAVIO Surgical System. CORI is surgeon-controlled handheld robotics, and its modular design will enable it to be scaled across the orthopedic service line. Smith+Nephew will continue to introduce new applications for this robotics platform.

Robotics-assisted knee replacement surgery using the CORI Surgical System combined with the features and benefits of Smith+Nephew’s implant portfolio can lead to the following patient benefits:

  • Quicker, smoother recovery
  • Regain function faster and return home sooner
  • A unique plan: We use 3D digital modeling to get a surgical plan customized to the patients’ unique anatomy. This means our surgeon can perform the procedure more accurately than traditional knee replacement surgery.
  • A natural fit: Using these technologies patients can keep more of their natural bone and ligaments, including the ACL. That helps maintain more of a natural rhythm and step.
  • A wide selection: Our surgeon is able to choose from the widest selection of implants available, so implants can be precision-matched to feel more like a patient’s own knee.

Individual results may vary. Individual results may vary. There are risks associated with any surgical procedure including CORI-enabled Knee Replacement. The CORI Surgical System is not for everyone. Children, pregnant women, patients who have mental or neuromuscular disorders that do not allow control of the knee joint, and morbidly obese patients and patients contraindicated for UKR, PFA and TKA should not undergo a CORI procedure. Consult your physician for details to determine if surgery using the CORI Surgical System is right for you.
