ROBODOC – Pioneering robotic orthopedic products for over 20 years.
1986. IBM’s Thomas J. Watson Research Center and researchers at the University of California, Davis begin collaborative development of an innovative system for Total Hip Arthroplasty (THA). Their goal is to create a robotic surgical system that would redefine precision in joint replacement procedures.
1992. The ROBODOC® System makes medical history. By assisting a surgeon in a THA procedure, the system becomes the first of its kind to be used on humans. This breakthrough leads the way to rapid development of 3-dimensional image directed, pre-operative planning, and computer guided robotic surgery.

That same year the ROBODOC development team is awarded the prestigious Computerworld Smithsonian Award for Innovation in the Arts and Sciences for Medicine.
1994. Commercialization of the ROBODOC System begins in Europe while the Company continues to push the cutting edge of robotic technology for orthopaedics forward. Among ROBODOC’s advances are methods for pinless registration, Total Hip Arthroplasty with cementless implant, Total Knee Arthroplasty, and Revision Total Hip Arthroplasty.
Mid-2007. A partnership with a subsidiary of CUREXO Inc. of Korea enables ROBODOC to complete clinical studies at three major United States hospitals and proceed with the next level of technical development. As the Company transitions, CUREXO Technology Corporation emerges.
August 2008. The ROBODOC Surgical System receives 510(k) clearance from the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for Total Hip Arthroplasty procedures. This milestone makes ROBODOC the only active robotic system cleared by the U.S. FDA for orthopaedic surgery.
Today. The ROBODOC System has assisted surgeons in more than 28,000 joint replacement procedures across the United States, Europe, Japan, Korea and India. Meanwhile, the company continues its role at the forefront of medical technology through continual development of the ROBODOC® System. Considerations for product development/collaboration include Acetabular Cup, Uni-Condylar Knee, and Multi-Compartmental Knee. Additionally, an expert team of International surgeons is being formed to further expand the capabilities of the ROBODOC® System. Future applications under evaluation include Spine and Cranial surgeries.
