The ROBODOC Surgical System

The ROBODOC Surgical System is founded upon the seamless collaboration of two groundbreaking technologies. The first, ORTHODOC®, allows your surgeon to pre-operatively plan your procedure down to the smallest detail. This plan is then carried out with an elevated level of precision by the ROBODOC Surgical Assistant. Working in tandem, these advanced systems have been used in over 28,000 successful total joint replacements restoring mobility and reducing hip and knee joint pain for patients worldwide.

With the help of the ORTHODOC pre-surgical planning workstation, your surgeon begins by viewing a complete 3-dimensional image of the hip or knee joint. This image, built from detailed imported CT data, allows the surgeon to plan and refine his surgery based on an exact virtual model of the joint. After selecting the ideal implant from a library of major manufacturer implants, your surgeon proceeds to complete a “virtual surgery,” planning and accounting for your unique anatomical characteristics. After this "virtual surgery" has been perfected on the ORTHODOC workstation, it is then transferred to the ROBODOC Surgical Assistant in the Operating Room.

Once the surgeon's finely honed surgical plan is loaded in to the ROBODOC Surgical Assistant, the advantages of the entire ROBODOC System are brought to life. The ROBODOC Surgical Assistant implements the surgical plan with unmatched precision.

According to numerous independent clinical studies the combination of ORTHODOC and the ROBODOC Surgical Assistant leads to the better fit, fill and alignment of the implant, all measures of a successful joint replacement1,2,4. In addition, the pre-planning and precise execution of ROBODOC reduces leg length discrepancy2, intra-operative fractures1,3 and pulmonary emboli5 which can be common complications associated with hip and knee arthroplasty6,7,8,9. In short, because the surgeon is able to plan every step and account for every detail of the procedure before the first incision is ever made, ROBODOC takes hip and knee joint replacement to an entirely new level in terms of precision.
