Smith+Nephew announced what it called the first robotic-assisted surgery using its LEGION CONCELOC Cementless Total Knee System was performed by Dr. Cyna Khalily, an orthopaedic surgeon specializing in adult reconstructive surgery of the hip and knee in Louisville, KY.
Smith+Nephew offers both total and partial cementless knee implants, and now, a robotic-assisted solution for cementless total knee arthroplasty (TKA) with the CORI Surgical System. The LEGION CONCELOC Cementless Total Knee System addresses the elements of the cementless total knee through its design. The asymmetrical keel is designed to provide immediate rotational stability, while the 3D-printed structure of CONCELOC Advanced Porous Titanium encourages biological ingrowth.
The CORI Surgical System is a second-generation platform that is small, portable, and capable of performing robotic-assisted knee and computer-guided hip surgery on a single platform. It can eliminate time, costs, and radiation exposure associated with preoperative CT imaging.
