What is Cori-Robotics
The future is approaching fast and with it comes new advancements in technology. These advancements include the newest technology now employed at BEST Health System. CORI-Robotics is a handheld, radiation-free robotics-assisted technology. It is capable of helping plan surgery and assisting with said surgery. The system is much more efficient and more accurate than traditional surgery. It can be used for total knee replacements and does not need a CT scan to operate. Read this guide to learn more about the capabilities of CORI-Robotics. At BEST Health System, we take pride In our minimally invasive procedures and Cori-robotics facilitates these procedures even more.
How Does It Work
Think of CORI Robotics as an extension of the surgeon. It starts by creating a digital model of your knee. Being able to see it in digital form allows your surgeon to create a precise and detailed plan of action when tackling your specific surgery.
It also helps during the procedure, the system is programmed to send signals to the surgeon to remove damaged surfaces, balance your joint, and achieve accurate positioning of the knee implant. This allows for a more naturally shaped knee and a shorter recovery time.
What It Treats
It mainly assists in minimally invasive surgery that calls for full knee replacement. A total knee replacement is replacing the entirety of a patient’s knee joint. This is only considered an option when the damage is advanced in which the surgeon will replace the entire knee joint.
An example of a condition that can call for total knee replacement is osteoarthritis. Osteoarthritis, a common form of arthritis, can affect the knee or other parts of the body. Only after all conservative treatment options for osteoarthritis have been exhausted, surgery is considered.
The Benefits of CORI Robotics
CORI Robotics is beneficial for a number of reasons. The main reason is the specialized aspect of the technology. Everyone’s body is vastly different from one another. CORI Robotics takes this into consideration and when it digitizes your knee, it is precise and unique to you which leads to a better fit replacing the knee. It offers a wide selection of implants and has a much more natural fit compared to traditional techniques.
How BEST Health System Can Help
