Total Knee Replacement with the ROSA® Robotic-Assisted Knee System

ROSA stands for RObotic Surgical Assistant. This innovative technology enables surgeons to carry out minimally invasive knee replacement procedures with greater precision and a higher standard of care.

Who is a candidate for ROSA Total Knee Replacement?

The ROSA Knee System is appropriate for anyone with early-to-mid stage osteoarthritis who is exhibiting symptoms such as knee pain, knee swelling, and knee locking, and has not responded to conservative treatment. Osteoarthritis is a degenerative joint disease, resulting in the breakdown and loss of cartilage in the joint that provides cushioning between the bones.

  • Before – Your surgeon will take a series of x-rays and create a 3D model of your unique knee anatomy.
  • During – Much like traditional total knee replacement but with the added precision that robotic-assisted technology provides.
  • After – A short hospital stay followed by a prescribed recovery plan from your surgeon.
