Advanced Sensor Assisted Knee Surgery

 

Holy Cross Hospital in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, was the first hospital in the world to perform advanced sensor assisted knee surgery.  

The surgery is designed to improve patient recovery and overall implant function by incorporating computer assisted alignment, customized implant positioning and optimized sensor assisted soft tissue balancing. Using embedded nanosensors, this minimally invasive procedure allows the surgeon to customize the surgery for each individual patient's knee condition.

Watch and learn as orthopaedic surgeon, Martin Roche, MD, performs this cutting edge procedure.
