Robotics in Orthopedic Surgery

“The robotic technology combined with the computer navigation has convinced me that the future of technology in surgery is now. Shoulder surgery, hip surgery, and knee surgery are benefitting now from these technologies. Sports Medicine procedures will benefit. I have also watched this technology transform surgery for my colleagues in general surgery, urology, and gynecology. It is my opinion that all areas of medicine will soon benefit from the emerging technology of computer and robotic enhanced care.”
