NORTH LITTLE ROCK -- Doctors at Arkansas Surgical Hospital have a new helping hand for knee replacement surgery with the arrival of the Zimmer Biomet ROSA®️ Knee System. The ROSA knee system brings together robotic technology with industry-leading surgeons to help personalize surgical procedures.
ROSA Knee is a robotically-assisted surgical system designed to help perform total knee replacement surgery. The system is scheduled to be installed at Arkansas Surgical Hospital in August with surgeries anticipated to start in early September.
Real-time data provided by ROSA Knee alerts surgeons to minuscule movement a patient's leg may make during the operation. In addition, advanced modeling technology provides a way for surgeons to create three-dimensional models of a patient's joint using images obtained by x-rays.
The robotic assistant also includes features to assist with bone resections, assessing the state of soft tissues, and controlling and moving surgical instruments, which allows for precision and flexibility for the surgeon during procedures.
