CORI Technology for Joint Replacement Surgery
Joint pain is the most common reason for seeing an orthopedic physician. It can range from mildly irritating to debilitating and becomes increasingly more common with age. Many people live in pain but the good news is, joint pain can be treated or even alleviated completely. At Orthopedic Associates of the Lowcountry and Hilton Head Hospital, we are committed to helping our patients in the Lowcountry and nearby cities treat and manage joint pain and see you go back to a more active lifestyle and do the things that you enjoy.
What Is the CORITM Surgical System?
CORITM Surgical System is a robotics-assisted navigation technology designed to help orthopedic surgeons perform partial and total knee replacement surgery with a greater degree of accuracy, potentially resulting in better implant durability. With the CORITM Surgical System, patients who have had knee operations may experience less pain and swelling compared to traditional surgical methods.
How Does the CORITM Surgical System Work for Knee Replacement?
CORITM Surgical System works in tandem with your surgeon’s skilled hands to achieve precise positioning of the knee implant components during surgery.
Each patient has a unique anatomy. The CORITM Surgical System eliminates the need to get a CT scan of your knee before surgery. During the procedure, the surgeon uses the CORI handheld robotics technology to create a customized 3D digital model of your knee. This image helps the surgeon choose the right size of the implant for you and create a detailed surgical plan to optimize your knee’s range of motion and function. CORI’s camera technology is four times faster and has twice the cutting volume technology for a faster robotic surgical procedure compared to other systems.
