The latest innovation from Smith+Nephew is our handheld robotics-assisted technology for partial and total knee replacements. This advanced technology enables your surgeon to plan and perform your surgery with a greater degree of accuracy than is possible with traditional methods.9
A unique plan
Your knee replacement surgery is as unique as you are. After all, it is the only one that's based on the combination of your individual knee anatomy and the specific implant your surgeon has determined is right for you. To help ensure your implant is positioned and aligned correctly to your anatomy, the CORI◊ Surgical System creates a customized 3D digital model of your knee. This three-dimensional view helps your surgeon choose the right implant for you. In addition, the 3D digital model eliminates the need to get a CT scan of your knee before your surgery, which reduces your exposure to harmful radiation.
A natural fit
The benefits of robotics-assisted surgery is about more than just a detailed 3D view of your knee. The CORI◊ Surgical System also helps ensure your procedure is performed as the surgeon planned it, giving you the benefits of enhanced accuracy when compared to traditional knee surgery. Accuracy is important because it not only helps the implant function as intended, it also helps avoid uneven wear which can shorten the longevity of an implant.
More implant options
Unlike other robotics platforms, our system works will all of our partial and total knee implants - including those made from our exclusive VERILAST Technology for added durability. This wide selection allows your surgeon to chose the right implant for you.
