ROSA is a robotic surgical assistant that helps your consultant perform total knee replacement surgery with improved precision. The process differs from traditional surgery because it uses a robotic system to prepare and perform your surgery.

 

It is important to remember that ROSA doesn’t replace the need for an experienced knee surgeon. The robot does not perform the knee replacement surgery, because it cannot cut, implant, or stitch. It is a tool for alignment, helping ensure that the alignment, sizing, and rotational positioning of an implant are correct throughout surgery.

 

This means that patients have a quicker recovery, more precise alignment, and return to normal activities much quicker.
