National Park Medical Center offers Robotic Knee System for Total Knee Replacement

National Park Medical Center, a part of LifePoint Health, is pleased to announce that it has acquired the latest innovation in robotic technology, the Zimmer Biomet ROSA to assist with knee replacement surgeries. With this technology, we have the opportunity to improve surgical outcomes and allow for faster patient recovery. This is made possible by a more than $700,000 investment from LifePoint Health.

Total joint replacement is one of the most commonly performed, elective surgical procedures in the United States.  The ROSA (Robotic Surgical Assistant) is designed to help in performing total knee replacement surgery.  It includes features to assist with bone resections and assessing the balance of the soft tissues in order to facilitate implant positioning intraoperatively. Data provided by the robot assists with complex decision-making and enables surgeons to use computer and software technology to control and manipulate surgical instruments, allowing for greater precision during procedures.
