FAYETTEVILLE -- Washington Regional now offers Zimmer Biomet's ROSA® Knee System, state-of-theart robotic technology that helps surgeons personalize surgical procedures for their patients. Washington Regional is the first hospital in Northwest Arkansas to use the system.
ROSA Knee is a robotically-assisted surgical system designed to help perform total knee replacement surgery. Data provided by ROSA Knee enables surgeons to use computer and software technology to control and move surgical instruments, allowing for greater accuracy.
According to Kris Hanby, MD, medical director of Washington Regional Total Joint Center, the system facilitates more precise implant positioning, which leads to better patient outcomes.
For everyone involved - surgeons, medical staff and, most importantly, patients - ROSA Knee has the potential to offer several key benefits and advantages according to Hanby. The decision to have joint replacement is often a difficult one for patients to make, and robotically-assisted technologies have the potential to make it an easier decision moving forward he said.
Total joint replacement is one of the most commonly performed elective surgical procedures in the United States, and this system will lead to better outcomes for patients. Since installation in October, almost 50 procedures have been completed using the ROSA Knee System. To learn more, visit wregional.com/rosaknee.
